Here is Kaitlyn crossing the finish with one of my old friends and her cousin Lexi. After the race my friend told me that Kaitlyn and her cousin had run pretty hard most of the way and started to slow down. She heard Kaitlyn turn to Lexi and say, "Come on, we need to do this for Jordan" they picked up their pace and ran the rest of the 5K.
