But I digress...
The kids love it. It was Jilli's first year. She's come down with me to watch the other kids in the past so she was pretty stoked about it. I always try to give the kids some advice, I wouldn't call it coaching, but advice on how to run these. I don't know why. They never really listen.
I'm posting pictures. So move along if you don't want to look.
And they're off!! Jilli rocked the 70's shorts and braids.
I love the look on her face in this one. They ran half a lap.
She was one of the last to come through but she finished hard.
Oh and she doesn't really go to school with faceless children.
(although that would make for a more interesting blog tidbit)
I've blurred their faces because I don't want some mom
coming after me for posting photos of her kid without permission.
I love this shot. At first I was mad because I missed her.
I missed MOST of her.
I captured her swiftness with the shot of
her braids flying and
her cute patootie.
Man that half a lap was HARD!
But she's all smiles.
George setting off. His class ran two laps. I tried to advise
him to start out fairly slow and then build up and sprint at the end.
Unfortunately he got a cramp about 3/4 of the way through the first lap.
But he finished! Way to go George!!
McKenna decided not to run this year. I fear that my attitude towards running has infected her. She and her friends cheered the runners on.
