Alaric decided a year ago at last year's Kirby Derby that he was going to train for the real race, not just the kids' race. AND HE DID IT!
Brian and I are beyond proud! We even had t-shirts made!
Look at that little boy...he's ready to go!
My amazing family!
The race was about to begin. Alaric was nervous. There were a TON of people. We were in the back because we had a stroller.
He ran the farthest he's ever run before he had to start. More than 1.25 miles without a break. He ran to the first water stop and our friends, The Parkers, were manning the station. Made it extra sweet!
Our friends were along the route to cheer Bubba on. The Morrison Family
Brian pushed him while I carried the camera and pushed the stroller. Sorry for the wobbles!
his biggest fans were waiting for us!
Look at this sweet boy!
And in 46 minutes ( thats with a 3-4 minute pit stop)
Then it was the kid's race for Mara. Unfortunately she was in a "mood" so Brian ran with her ( Brian the saint)
Alaric's teacher, Mrs. Elliot, came to support Alaric ( and a few other classmates!)
What better way to celebrate Alaric than with Mexican!
it was an ABSOLUTELY amazing day! My sweet 6 year old accomplished a fitness goal MANY never will. He's ready for his next race and we are so proud to be his parents! Love you BUBBA!
