Since Mom was in town anyway to celebrate her birthday, she came out to cheer us on at this year’s Carlsbad 5000. This local road race has seen more world record road 5K times than any other. Jen and Nicole both set personal best times over 3.1 miles, while Christopher just narrowly failed to do so. All three of us, however, finished in the first 250 racers in our age groups to nab a “First 250” medal. After grabbing brunch nearby, we returned just in time to see the professionals race. While no world records were set this year, we will very likely get to see many of these runners race again at the London Olympics.
