Run Baby Run!!

The running club in Fairbanks put on a very informal cross-country run for kids. They could choose to run .75 miles or 1.5 miles.
We told Hunter about this opportunity and he seemed pretty interested. So, we clocked what .75 miles would be in the car, and then we had him run it on the treadmill. He liked it, and he thought it would be great to run in a little competition.
We took his friend Ian with us, and thought he might enjoy running too. Apparently, it isn't "his thing."
However, Hunter was so AWESOME. I was a very proud Momma! He was pushing hard, and focusing. He was very excited that he passed TWO Dads (who were running with their kids).
He is sure that the Sketchers had a lot to do with how fast he ran. He finished his race in 9 min. and 10 seconds. He was just so cute all red faced, out of breath and proud of his accomplishments.
I congratulated him and then sent him back to go get Ian and push him in. He really almost had to DRAG Ian in.
It was a fun evening and he can't wait to do it again.
