Thanksgiving 5K

This year we decided to run a 5k. My sister and her family ran too. Even my brother-in-law's mother walked with us, she was my Young Women's President growing up. She did a great job!!! Just after the start of the race Ben decided he wanted to run with Ronny and the boys who took off from the start. There was no way he would catch up to them, but there was no convincing him. I ran the first mile with him trying to explain this right up until we caught up with my nephew Nathan. The three of us stuck together for the rest of the race. We walked another mile and then I carried Ben the last mile. He whined the entire race! It took us about an hour to finish and other than the whining, we had a great time! The race benefited the Utah Food Bank and they earned aver $100,000 so we were happy to walk for a purpose.
