I am so proud of these two!
They've been watching their dad & I run races for three years, so it's only natural that they'd want to do it too! We had a local race this weekend so we decided to give them a shot. There was an un-timed option, so that's what we did because we weren't sure what to expect. We brought the stroller along just in case!
My two favorite boys
Me & my peanut
All 4 of us at the starting line
I loved that my daughter kept asking us, "do I look FAST?" and our son kept asking if it was time to race yet!
Here are the kids at "on your mark"
Pretty soon we were off! The girls ran together and the boys ran together. At about a mile in my daughter (who's 4) asked to ride in the stroller. I jogged with her in the stroller for just a bit before dad took over and then took off...I stayed with our son (who's 7). We walked ran the whole 3.1 miles. I am SO PROUD of him!
Here he is about a block from the finish line.
We had a great race. It was a wonderful morning for our family. I hope it's the first of many many more family races!
