This race was only two weeks after Michael's last 5k, where he left a little disappointed because he missed his PR by one second, and missed the family PR by five seconds. Going in to the race today, he knew the weather was cooler, the course was flatter, and I told him to start up front. Last race he was held up by some slower runners that insist on starting at the front. All of that, combined with his increased training, made for one amazing race.
I am continually amazed by Michael's progress. He beat his PR by 51 seconds. For a 5k that is a huge improvement. Here are some pictures we took, along with a video at the bottom:
