Pride




Nick and I did the Grings Mill 5-K over the weekend. Jack also ran in the kids fun run. Despite the heat later in the day it ended up being a beautiful race. Every year this one is a winner! The race is run on a beautiful course and is well shaded which is always a plus. Josh, our nephew and the boys grandparents came along to cheer us on and take some pictures.


Since Nick was 5 he has always ran the adult races and typically places. This year was no exception and he finished in 23:19 and 40th overall out of 162 other adults and teenagers. He placed 2nd in the 14 and under group. Not to bad for a 9 year old. As a matter of fact he beat me by 78 people and 9 minutes. Can you hear the pride in my voice?


Jack also did quite a good job in the kids race even after taking a fall on the cinder course. He hopped right back up, wiped himself off and raced to the end. He was extremely happy with his goodie bag of bubbles and candy. The gold plastic medal was very impressive too!


Here are some pictures from race day!
