Bobby got 4th overall with a time of 19:31 – Wow! Brother Danny got first in his age group with a time of 20:20. 3 of us got 4th in our age group (Argh, so close to placing): Emily (30:27), Nathan (21:56) and me (25:53).
Bobby received first in his age group and 7th overall at the 2010 Youth Villages 5k Saturday. And most important of all… HE GOT UNDER A 20 MINUTE 5K TIME!!! His time: 19:54. He has been trying to do this for a long time and kept getting just over 20 minutes.On the treadmill he could get it, but in a real 5k he couldn’t…until Saturday. SO PROUD!
Have you signed up the Youth Villages 5k yet? It’s only the 5k that started it all (for me) and is one of the best in Memphis!
You say you haven’t signed up yet?! Then consider joining team Keller Williams Memphis Eastand helping us reach our goal for the kids of Youth Villages. Realtor Carrie McCaskill Smith is our team captain (the Youth Villages 5k is sponsored by the Memphis Area Association of Realtors).
The race is in East Memphis, starting at the Ridgeway Center and going through some nice neighborhoods. It is a big race with lots of hot dogs, chips, beer and a band afterward.
