Written by Owen:

This is the first race of Run for Your Life's 2015 GPX Series.  Last year Michael won the 19&Under division, so we're hoping for another good year.

Today's temperatures were in the upper 40's with a steady cold rain.  Malissa and Alicia are fighting off a cold, but they, along with Kyle and myself, braved the elements and cheered Michael on.

Four miles is a pretty unusual distance.  We are used to running 5k's and pacing for them.  You don't consider 4 miles much more than 3.1 miles (5k), but it does make a difference.  Michael cramped up pretty bad at the end of today's race, which slowed his time down a little, but still had a great race and finished in 1st place in the 14&Under division.

His award was a 4-pack assortment of root beers and cream sodas, with a custom box.  Here's video Malissa shot, followed by pictures from the morning:
