Fun Run

Our neighborhood had a 5k/Fun Run fundraiser this weekend, and we did the Fun Run with our boys. Ever since I ran my 5k a couple of weeks ago, Cormac has been asking me to let him race, too. I didn't think he was ready for a 5k, even if we walked some of it, so we signed up for the Fun Run (1 mile). I'm really glad, because it was hard enough for him! He was running pretty well, until he tripped and fell, and then he wouldn't run anymore -even though he was fine, no scrapes or anything. It was raining the whole time though, so it might have dampened his spirits a little. He was pretty competitive at first, and sped up whenever someone was about to pass us. It would have been cute, except he was kind of getting mad about it, and I had to talk to him about sportsmanship... It was hard for him to understand why he didn't HAVE to be first, even though it was a race. But he did start back up running at the very end, so he could run through the balloon finish line. Russ and Scott were farther back, but Russ ran to me at the finish line, too, and he had a blast. We'll have to do it again next year!

This is before the race.


It was raining harder at the end, so we didn't pull our camera out. And then we had to walk home in the rain, too. But we warmed the boys up with hot cocoa and watched a movie together after. It was a great day!
