We decided to run this race just a few days before the race.  The kids were staying at Opa and Neina's (Grandpa & Grandma) house for the weekend. Malissa and I were deciding what we were going to do with our rare weekend alone.

We decided a nice trip to the Smoky Mountains was in order.  We like to revolve our trips around a race so I found this race in Cosby, Tennessee.  Since we were doing it for fun, I told Malissa I would pace her.  She shattered her PR by several minutes.

After the race, I wanted to run back to the Bed & Breakfast we were staying at as part of my marathon training.  Malissa stayed back for the awards and I actually beat her back (about 7 miles straight up the highway).

We thought the awards were pretty cool.
The winning time was in the 21 minute range.  I was bummed Michael wasn't there.  I honestly believe he would have won the entire race.
