A family marathon
I got out at 6:50 this morning, to run my last long run (8 miles in 1hr 16 min) before my first marathon (it’s next week. Eeek!) I had a very important race I couldn’t miss at 9:30 am. I was running 1.2 miles with Preston and the kids in our first race as a family.
It was a family marathon. We’ve been tracking the first 25 miles as a family for 3 weeks. Which adds up pretty quickly when mommy is training for a full marathon already. Ha.
At 9:30 am we got to the park to run the last 1.2 miles together. It was awesome. We got matching t-shirts, finishing medals, buttons to the fall festival and Panera bagels. Best race ever!
It was fun to run with the kids. It turned into boys against girls at the end. The boys won, but we didn’t know we were racing. Classic boys.
Maya was really into the running. Maddox was really into the bagels. Ha.
I’m pretty proud of how much my kids ran! I’ll say this has been my most fun race yet!
