Shannon with her dad Steve
Despite doing a hard track workout on Wednesday, Shannon had her fastest 5K in the last 9 years, 21:20. Her dad Steve did the race in 32 minutes, placing high in his age group. I have been trackwhacked the last 2 weeks, beaten down by the Wednesday Godiva track workouts, but still managed an OK time of 19:47
