Memorial Day 5K

This morning I got up super early, and dragged my ten-year-old out of bed, to participate in a 5K race. 

It was my son's first time racing at this distance, and he finished in 31 minutes - I am SO proud of him! He ran almost the whole way.

I, on the other hand, combined walking with waddling, so it took me an hour to finish (as I expected it to)

But I DID finish, at least!  And I was ahead of a few hundred other people, so that felt good.

All in all, it was absolutely worth sacrificing a little sleep for.......especially considering the contrasting sacrifice made by those we remember today.

May we all still remember them TOMORROW, and next week, next month, next year....may our children and our children's children ALWAYS REMEMBER.

Walking and waddling.... you crack me up!

Congrats to both you and your son on finishing the Memorial Day 5k. Oh and baby Thomas even though he was only along for the ride :-)
