The Troupe Goes Racing

For me, the next best thing to racing is watching my kids race. I saw an ad this morning for a local 5 k with some short distance (100y, 400y) kid races and a 1 mile fun run. I asked the kids about it and they were super-excited! My kids love to go racin'!

Prior to the start, they scoped the courses...
For the 1 mile run, I pushed the little ones in the stroller...
Tess cruises...

Emma makes the pass!
Hooray for kid medals!If she strains hard enough, maybe the muscles will show...

Discussing race strategy with her pal in Colorado...

Post-race pizza caps off another fun day!

Nice! Start them early. It's really cool that you can share your sport with your kids.
