I thought it would be good for them to experience the excitement of being in a real race.
Jake was pretty diligent about training the few weeks beforehand. He'd get up early & go jogging around the neighborhood.
Max figured he ran around enough at school playing soccer & being chased by girls at recess, and didn't need to really train for it.
So they got their cool Kids Rock t-shirts & got their race numbers pinned on them & felt ready for the race.
The starting line.
And they're off!
They came in almost at the same time & were among the first 30 or so kids to cross the finish line out of about 600!
It was so exciting!!
We were so proud!!
While waiting for the race to start, the kids ran around on all these blow-up jump things.....
Zane had some sweet static-head going on.
Then.......what better way to top off a morning of teaching our children the excitement & importance of physical fitness than to head to.......
