Tom's 10k Trek

My step-son had a hockey tournament in Lake George, NY this weekend. There was a local 10k/5k this weekend there so we (my mom and father in-law) registered. I registered for the 10k and my mom registered for the 10k. The race was a first year race and it was SMALL. It was a great race and a beautiful course. The 5k was a loop that was uphill for 1.7 miles and flat/downhill the rest. The 10k was 2 was a hard course. I was pleased. I finished in 49:34 (8:00/mile pace) I was 1st in my age group, 5th women and 11th person overall.
My kids came to watch...... this is Ally rooting me on!

  1. And Amy, we would LOVE to have you and your family back!! For a 1st year race, we did indeed have a small turnout of actual runners/walkers, but with sponsorships and donations we brought in over $3,700 :) My former fiancé was Tom and it was his dream to do a "bike trek from NY to Texas" while bringing awareness to MS, and with people like yourself and our volunteers, we did that and raised much needed funds!! THANK YOU SO MUCH AGAIN FOR COMING!!!! A portion of the proceeds also benefit his 2 young sons, so although you were just in town for a hockey tournament, you truly have helped make a difference in a couple of young boys lives and for that I thank you from the bottom of my heart. <3 & :)'s ~Rebecca S.
