Just in time for the ridiculously hot weather we've been having lately came another opportunity for Zoe to run in a 5K race. This time it was the Mebane Dogwood Festival 5K, within walking distance of our house.
Zoe and her friend Deanna were right at the front of the starting line.
And at the 8:30 gun, they were off.
Around 35 minutes later, Zoe crossed the finish line by herself.
She thinks she could've done it maybe five minutes faster, had she not walked back to catch up with her friend, who wasn't quite as fast.
Unfortunately, the youngest age group was 0-19, and as a nine-year-old competing against 19-year-olds, she didn't stand much of a chance to win a medal. There was one young girl who finished before her, but she probably wasn't under 10.
But she'll get another chance next weekend when she runs another 5K in Chapel Hill.
