Race Day

Jacob and David ran their first race on Thanksgiving this year.  They had a lot of fun participating and being a part of race day.  Our plan was to have one of us at the start line and one at the finish, unfortunately the race was a bit disorganized.  By the time I had ran all over trying to locate their race numbers we only had one minute to pin them on and then they were off.  Ben and I were left at the start line with two extra coats, a car seat with a baby inside(heavy), a diaper bag and a two year old.  We really tried to run to the finish line to see them cross, but we missed the big moment.  The boys still had fun and got running bags with a bunch of free stuff(garbage), snacks after, and a race day shirt.  The race this year was just .25 miles but Jacob says next year he wants to run the 5K.  We are proud of our little runners!

That is so awesome! I had no idea they had "races" for kids that small! What a great way to get kids started into running early!
