New Track Season

Annika started the 2013 Track season with a couple of events.  The first was the Timberwolf 5K in Irvine.  Here she is with her running buddy Natalie before the race.


Here she is running with the big boys!


She got a 21 something for her first 5K race of the season.

Last weekend we went to Chino Hills for a race and she got a 5:54 in her first 1500m this season. Only about 10 seconds off her pace from last season.

Timberwolf 5K

Annika ran in her first 5K this season and did awesome.  She got a 23:09 on a difficult and hilly course.  Here are some pics.

The first picture is near the beginning of the race.

Here she is near the end of the race – the littlest one around, beating the high school boys!

And enjoying the fruits of her labor after the race 🙂

Dino Dash 5K 2009

Nikhil and Annika ran in the Tustin Dino Dash 5K.  Nikhil crashed through the 20 minute barrier.  This was Annika’s first time at the Dino Dash.  There were about 2000 runners in the race.  You can see Annika in the green shirt in the back of the picture.



Here is Nikhil near the finish on his way to a 19:25 time.


Here is Annika after the run with Mom.   Mom and Dad were down for the weekend to watch the race and visit the grandkids.


Here are Annika, Nikhil and their friend Colby.  Annika got a 24:50 time and a second place medal for her age group.


The full results are posted here (overall 5K) and here (age division awards).

Cross Country season started and Annika and Nikhil ran their first 5K’s of the season at the Guy Poncy Memorial 5K held at Anaheim Stadium.  Here is a link to the race results which were not easy to find!

Nikhil picked up where he left off last year and ran a 20:41 (6:40 pace).  Last year at this time, he got just over 26 minutes.  It was a very cool course and the kids got to run on the field inside Angel Stadium.


Annika ran her very first 5K with a goal of 30 minutes.  She sailed through that and got a 28:49 and got 3rd place overall in the 14 and under Girls Division.  Too much fun!


Here she is with her medal!

Today was the 5K Dino Dash in Tustin. Nikhil and I both ran. No good pictures since we were both running and I couldn’t stop for pics.


We both ran hard and Nikhil finished at 26:39 minutes and I finished at 27:19 minutes. This is his second 5K and looks like it is about a 30 secon improvement in time since the Chapman 5K. Nikhil was 25th in his age group and I was 45th in my age group! I would add that we were slow to start by at least 30 seconds at the starting line because of the throngs of people in front of us and having to dodge some very slow people.   There were 2244 people running in this 5K.  The official results are posted on the website.
