I got up early this morning and headed out for a quick 4 mile run, came home and helped the kids get ready for their 2 mile race. They were so excited!
We got to the race with about 12 minutes to spare! Just enough time to snap a few pictures
practice some cartwheels while standing in line for the port a potty
I stayed with Avery and she started really strong, about a mile in she started run walking the rest of the way. The last half mile was a bit of a struggle for her as she had a sideache, just then a boy from her kindergarten class and his mom passed us. I leaned over to her and said "you aren't going to let Colter beat you are you?" and she was off! It might have helped that the whole last quarter of a mile I told her mantra after mantra
Finally! She has her own medal! She kept asking me to give her one of mine, but I told her she had to earn it. 1st place in her age group!
