After helping his Dad as a pacer last fall, my oldest really wanted to be in a race.
Snacks and a medal.
The Snake Run at Turkey Mountain.
There is a 3hr race and a 6hr race (you try to get the most miles in that time).
We entered my son in the 3hr one and Nick entered the 6hr.
Nick started later with the 3hr racers so he could run with our son.
He did one lap and then took a break while his dad did another lap.
Just wanted to eat more food.
The 6hr race was still going so we waited around for my husband to finish.
I really like this race location.
I am really familiar with the Turkey Mountain trails so I took the boys on several hikes in between seeing Nick.
So proud of my men!
My sons thoughts about the race:
“It was really really fun!”
“There were very yummy aid stations”
“In the end there was lots of food and I ran 7.5 miles”
“It was very hard, and I got a shirt and actual medal”
“I want to do 100 miles when I get older.”
Here is last years race.
