Marmet 5k Fun Run & Walk

On the same Saturday that my brother Geoff ran the Lawyers Have Heart 5k, my other brother Drew and my niece Lily ran the Marmet 5k Fun Run & Walk. Not too long ago, in March, Drew & Lily ran another race which was Lily’s first official race. She’s been a Team G Shock cheerleader for years, so its fun that she is getting out there herself now!

This race benefited the WV Kids Cancer Crusaders, who support children and families fighting the results of pediatric cancer. Obviously we have a soft spot for all cancer charities at Team G Shock, so we were really glad they were able to run for such an amazing cause!

There was a good crowd at the race, and Drew & Lily made their way through the course together. Here are the unofficial results:

Drew Ross – 43:00
Lily Ross – 43:00

That is a 2-minute improvement on Lily’s first race time, not too shabby for a 6-year-old!

And as usual, we were able to get lots of photos from their cheerleaders, so enjoy those!

Dad & Daughter before!

Ready to run!

Run Run Run!

Gettin' close..

Crossing the finish line together!


A much deserved post-race treat!

The race even wore out our newest cheerleader, Layni!

Soon enough Nate & I will be back out there, and can't wait to run another race for Team G Shock! In the meantime, we very much appreciate that our family has taken up the cause for us!
