The kids before diaper dash (12mo-3yo) and ghoul run (4-8yo)
The morning was crisp and cool as we bundled up. The smell of fire pits and coffee filled the air and warm apple cider warmed our hands. "Sports candy", as the kids call fruit (thank you Sporticus) and water were waiting in the pavilion for a yummy post race snack. We were excited to run our first family race together!
I think it's fair to say that we may have caught the running bug. The kids have been begging to run since they saw their mama run the half marathon this past spring. The pumpkin patch run was the perfect place for the kids to start. K dressed up as Sophia, S a ninja turtle, C was Mario, and Q Iron Patriot.
C and Q finished their race in record time. They both ran a 400m and I was lucky enough to get to run it with them. They were so delighted - and so were we. Just love them!
Seriously overjoyed for this little girl. Two years ago she wasn't walking. She has the most severe form of spina bifida. Today she dances, jumps and runs. Unbelievable. So honored to place her first medal around her neck. Thrilled for her!
S excited to have finished chasing Elmo down the dirt road for 40 yards. Look how adorable he is in his costume. And so super sweet to be around. So proud of this little boy!
Oh Lord, thank you for these days with our children. Such special, unforgettable memories!
