So now that you've heard the history of this race, I'll tell you about this past Saturday. It was a beautiful morning out. Sunshine, blue skies, a wonderful breeze and a teensy bit chilly. The race is held at a park near where we used to live and I've run a few races over there. Honestly even though I wanted to weave around the park to see Jonathan at the different points, I didn't know if I could do it fast enough with the double stroller and be at the right locations in time. So we just parked it near the finish line and cheered for the runners. This year they had a 5 and 10k that had the same start time and finish line, so since Jonathan was in the longer distance we were able to be entertained by the 5k runners coming through while we waited for him.
Adalyn was half asleep and a bit confused. She kept asking "Where dada go?" from the time J lined up at the start line until he crossed the finish line. It was pretty cute.
I had to capture the picturesque Kentucky landscape beyond finish line. I love running in places like this.
Adalyn was waving at the 5k runners as they came through.
Watching for dada. (And having a little leftover breakfast.)
Thankfully Cayden did this the entire time we were there!
I got some great pics of J headed toward the finish line.
I love this picture. Seriously. Look at that Kentucky fence. Perfect scenery for running!
Jonathan said he saw Adalyn's face light up when she figured out it was him running towards her.
A sweet lady offered to get a family picture. Next year I'll be in running gear... Hold me to it!
