The cutest thing ever happened on Saturday… B ran in his first race.
This face cracks me up. I have no idea what he’s doing.
Every year our local running store hold the “Smile Mile” race for kids ages 5-11. Money is donated to schools with the most participants (B’s school got a $500 check this year!). Ages 6-11 run a mile (it’s split by age group) and the 5 year olds (like B) run a half mile.
When we first got there the 6-year old boys were taking off (the winner ran a 7:09 mile! wow!), so we had to wait around a little bit. B was nervous and hesitant, but excited and determined. He found a few kids he knew (including our neighbor), lined up, and he was off!
L cheered him on.
About 5:30 minutes later he came running up to the finish line.
(grabbed this one off the Track Shack FB page! Thanks Track Shack :))
I’m thinking he runs just like me — he’s not a speed racer (it’s just not in our genes!), but he could go the distance. He was barely breaking a sweat!
And just like me… one race and he’s hooked. It’s gotta be the bling!
He can’t wait for his next race.
So proud of my little guy!!
