Kansas' 1st 5k
My first-born about to run her first-5k
Kansas with her All Saints' group before the race...see the girl to the left with the tiara on her head...that's Ms. Fort Worth (notice she wasn't participating in the race...surprise)
A couple of weeks ago, Kansas ran into my office after school and told me she wanted to run the 5K at the Fort Worth Zoo. I signed her up and today the rain held off so the race could take place. She met up with the All Saints' group at the starting line and they were off! I would have run it with her if I didn't have a tennis match....seriously I would have! Gene and I have been running every morning at 5:30am so I think I could handle a little 5K...maybe. :)(they do have free food at the finish line so I will have an incentive to finish) She had a blast and I am so proud of her for participating. Next year we are going to do it as a family minus our bulldog Gracie. She would make it 10 yards and then have an asthma attack...kind of sounds like some of the kids I coach...hehe. Kansas-Daddy and I are so proud of you and look forward to watching you run in many more races.
