Alaric begins his training!

Alaric told us he wanted to train for his first 5K and that he didn't want to do anymore kids runs. So, this morning, we decided to run as a family and see how it would go!
We stretched appropriately and took off on a two mile run with our stroller empty and two very excited little kids!

Alaric ran ONE WHOLE MILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And really without a huff or a puff! I think if the stroller hadn't of been there and we had some water with us, Alaric could have ran the whole way! He did amazing and made us so proud! He walked and strolled the last mile home but had a great time!

Mara did her best too and we ran the last block or so together. My kids made me so proud!

What a great way to start the holiday!
