Daniel’s First Race: The Big Sur Marathon Kids’ 3K
I thought it was so exciting to participate in such a huge event! People come from all around the world to run in the Big Sur Marathon. But did you know? There’s also a half marathon, a 5K, and a 3K, that are all a part of it.
Silly me. I volunteered to go at Daniel’s pace, so rest assured, there was no running for me.
So why am I still so gosh darn proud of the Dan Man? Well, most of the 4-year-olds there were riding in strollers for a while, walking a bit, riding in strollers, walking a bit, and so on. Not Dan. I only brought the single jogger, and the two-year-old lays a solid claim to that. Therefore, Dan ran and walked, and occasionally sat down in the middle of the road and said, “I can’t go on!” through the whole thing.
But he did! He did go on. He even beat one other 4-year-old. That’s right. It took us 45 minutes. Ha!
The big boys beat us by, I don’t know, a lot. See how well they warmed up:
Oh, and there you have it, the new hair cut. Whoops! Didn’t really mean to chop off quite that much, but it is only hair, right?
Now, onto the next race….
