Saturday my oldest son and I ran the Urban Wildland 5K. It was his first race ever. I was so excited and proud to be able to be able to do it with him. He just turned 9 years old last Friday and this was part of his birthday celebration. He did AWESOME. He took off at a pace that I could barely maintain, but forced myself to keep up with him. We ran, we walked, we ran some more. I let him decide how we were going accomplish this race. He would get a burst of energy when people would cheer him on. The photo above is him sprinting it in to the finish. That spot you see in the back....oh yeah...that is me. He ditched his own momma!!! Hmmmpf. He had a blast and is already asking when he can do another race. I am so proud of him!
His time: 41:08My Time: 41:15
