Holiday kids race!

Saturday was the annual Holiday Kids Race.  That 1 mile race is part of the activities around the Holiday Half Marathon.

This was our third year at that race.  Run Racing always have great events.  The kids races are all 1 mile, they are FREE and they the kids get nice medals.  They have 3 waves for the kids race and Rudy the MC is there for that race just like he is for the 5k and half marathon.  The 5K is right before the kids race so we got to see the end of that race while we were waiting....up until the very last walkers.  

Will and Jonathan both said that next year they want to do the 5K and I said ok.
They want the "snowflake" medal instead of the penguin !

Will's soccer team was still in the playoffs so we were rushed a little and I made the boys line up at the back of wave 1.  One wave ahead of the one they should have been in.  It was that or miss the race.
It ended up being just fine.  They came in ahead of the middle pack in around 9:00.

Before the start:


Coming to the finish, Will save the big brother honor and came in first....did not want to be beaten by Jonathan who reminded him that he beat him one year on the way there!!!!

Military men were there to give the medals for the whole weekend and that was awesome
