Immediately following our run, we cruised over to the starting line for a local 1-mile road race called the "Milk Run." Jen, Christine and I were all running it with our families. It was Skyler and Reed's first ever race. Bib numbers and everything. They were freaking out with excitement.
Here they are doing their pre-race stomping ritual. They were getting really pumped.
On the left, McKayla with Tyler and Kaitlyn, Jen's kids.
On the right, best buds Skyler and McKayla that I wrote about the other day.
(look at Skyler's face)
Reedo at the starting line. Getting into the zone.
Sam took off with Skyler, who ran almost the whole mile, and only took two short walking breaks. Reed? Well..... We ran like the wind! And then we walked. Then we rested. And then we ran like the wind! And then we rested! The wind! Rest! Wind! Look, McDonald's! Look, the river! Run! Rest! etc. etc.
I carried him for a few blocks and after he was rested up, we got to the top of the hill that brought us into town and to the finish line. At that point, he ran again. We came in 2nd to last. Here's a video!
