Race for Education

The school the kids go to has a Race once a year to raise money for improvements to the school. They have gotten new buses and computers and many other needed updates. Today Red had his run and I was so impressed with my little guy. He ran 10 laps in an hour that is 2 1/2 miles. He is hoping to get a trophy for running the most laps. They do that for the older grades so we'll see if they will give him one and if not I will go out a buy one. For being so good about running I took him from school instead of leaving him for the rest of the day and we went out to eat at his choice, Mc Donalds. I also got to walk/run 2 1/2 miles today and it felt great to be outside and moving. I will update this post with the older two kids running results tomorrow! I plan on giving them some money for lunch time to get an ice cream.

The older two ran the Race for Education today. Monkey ran 15 laps that is one short of 4 miles and GG ran 13 laps. They did such a great job! I am so proud of them all for enduring the heat and running.
