A few years ago we started a fun tradition where we ran a race sponsored by the Elementary schools. We start with a good stretch and then line up for a fun race. We started several years ago by doing the 1 mile run, but over the past couple of years have changed to the 3 mile run.
It is a fun challenge to run with the kids. This year though, Bryce and Matt were flying for their race. After the race Matt told us he was working hard to stay up with Bryce. Bryce is really starting to develop into a quick runner. I am sure he is faster than me and I think Darin would have to work really hard to keep up with him.
We all wore our matching green shirts so we could see each other in the race. It works good for us. We may get matching orange ones next with some silly quote on the back for our next races. We always love this race though, Bryce usually wins us some pumpkin cookies for being the fastest runner in his age group, he is kind to share too.
After running that far with the kids, we are all feeling silly and make some goofy faces. We will be preparing for our next race which is the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with us and we can all run a quicker race.
