My daughter Laura has taken up running and today she ran her first official race.
The Riverbank Run happens every year here in Grand Rapids. It's a popular race and runners come from across the country and even from other countries to run it. There is a 25K, 10K, 5K, wheelchair race and a 5K walk. She did the 10K run.
Of the 3623 who finished that race, 2204 of them were female. Laura was #997 of the women. I think she did great for her first race.
The weather was awful; 36 degrees and raining in the morning. It kind of drizzled throughout the race. We went to watch her come in, but she finished with a big group and we missed it!
Here she is with her husband Aaron, after the big race. Good job, Laura!
