2012 Nick Seaman 5K

Congrats to Madison for running her first 5K!  We had a great turnout this morning at the Nick Seaman 5K benefitting RamStrength.  This was the 3rd running and 2nd since Nick lost his battle to testicular cancer last spring.  I'm sure Nick was smiling down on the event today seeing so many kids out being active on a beautiful morning.  Over $8000 raised for a great cause.  Also congrats to Rocky Mountain High School for sporting the most runners and bringing home the Stanley Cup-ish Nick Seaman trophy to display at their school for the next year.

I had the pleasure of pacing my wonderful daughter Madison to the finish of her first 5K race.  She ran a 10 minute mile at school recently and was raring to go for it.  We brought it to the finish in just over 40 minutes even with our casual, almost "ultra-like", aid station stops.


  1. Congrats to your daughter, I never ran that far until I was an adult!

  2. How very beautiful and a great tribute to Nick. I'm sure he is one happy man up in Heaven.
