5K Snapshots

I posted Ben and the girls with their medals last week.  Here are some more pictures from the 5K race.

(1) Ben pinning on Vita’s race bib (2) Most of Fairview Run’s Running Club (3) Waiting in front of the Red’s Stadium before the race (4) Meet under the paddle wheel when everyone’s done (5) After the finish line I was able to get to the next good viewing area to see Ben and Bella run past (6) Vita was a little behind them (7) Vita closing in on the finish line (I didn’t make it in time to snap a photo of Isabella- she was too fast!) (8) After the race, Isabella, Vita and Ainsley had to play in a soccer game.  (9)The next day they wore their race shirts, medals and had an ice cream party at school.

I am so proud of them.  Not only did they run in amazing times for their ages. They were both under 32 minutes but they also ran at their own paces (even if that meant not running with friends).  I am also proud that they are not afraid to try new things and have the confidence to run these types of races.  I never hear them say they can’t do it and that is an awesome way to approach life.

  1. I am beyond impressed. All those things you mentioned you are proud of are spot on – and things I see my own kids struggle with – not running with their friends, taking on something hard etc. Congratulations.
