Running the BIG one!

Last weekend we were in Iowa visiting some family.  My hubby signed up to run with some of his family - they were all running either a 5K or a 10K race (except for me, of course, because I REALLY dislike running!).  We signed the kids up for the kids race too, which was a pretty short race (200 meters).  Anthony had a blast and thought he was hot stuff wearing an official number on his shirt.

Here he is with his older cousins, ready to run!

While his cousins led the pack, Anthony proudly brought up the rear!

After the race, the kids all went back up to the registration table to get their medals.  Anthony’s cousins were quick to say, “I got first!” and “I got second!”.  I was such a proud Mom when Anthony enthusiastically yelled, “I got last!”  He truly had a blast running with in his first race and was THRILLED to have run.  He was not at all concerned about getting last.

This little guy knows how to make his Momma proud.
