5K Fun Run

Today at 8 am was the Kaysville South Stake 8th Annual 5K “Family Run/Walk”, or sometimes referred to as The Dork Walk. My wife and I participated along with my brother Mike. Here we are before the race.

Brian used a computer to register everyone and to record their times at the finish. Last year I ran in 32 minutes so I was trying to beat that time. As my brother registered the lady asked him what age category he was in, 50+ or 60+. Mike got his tag with his name on it and said, “Can I start running now?” It seemed like levity was the order of the day and when I asked her if she would watch my glasses for me she offered to also look after my wallet. Any sort of transportation was allowed so long as it wasn’t motorized.

State Championship

Daniel leads in the 4x400 relay
This photograph was taken by my brother showing Daniel leading the third leg of the 4×400 relay, the last race of the Utah State Championships Saturday 17th May 2008. His relay team won again this year and Davis High boys won the championship with 110 points. Second place went to Viewmont with 68 points. The Davis High girls took second. This photograph is one of my favorites.
