Here's my marathon runner at the beginning of the race.
And we couldn't pass on a photo op with Batman.
My Dad and I dropped Peyton and Adam off at the starting line then went to find a spot with the other kiddos where we could watch them cross the finish line.
In my hurry to get out the door I packed all the "essentials" like goldfish, apple sauce squeezers, drinks and even some sunscreen. I neglected, however, to remember any toys or electronics for them to play with while we waited! (I even accidentally walked out the door without my cel phone!) So the kids quickly befriended our neighbors sitting beside us, thankfully they had several devices and extra coloring books to share. It takes a village!
And this stroller sat empty most of the time, it served as a snack holder and a place for her monkey to "rest"...faced down at that.
We got to see the Chick Fil A cows cheer the kids into the finish line.
Peyton did awesome on his run! Toward the very end he started to get tired but with Daddy's encouragement and then hearing his Gigi and Aunt Whitney cheering him on, he perked up and continued running on in, he never walked or stopped! We're so proud of you buddy!! Way to go!
My two runners did great and had a lot of fun too!
Here was his cheering fans section. It was a beautiful day for the race with perfect temps and a clear blue sky! I'm so glad that we redeemed the Little Rockers Marathon in his mind. We'll probably be back next year.
