go daddy go

well, he can cross that one off the bucket list.  chris ran a 5k.  that may not be a big deal to some, but it is for us.  we are more the patio-sitting, beer-drinking, tv watching, go out to eat type.  but lately we have made more of an effort when it comes to our health and fitness.  it seems chris has rediscovered his inner teenage track star.  hubba, hubba.

chris at home before the race.  it was early so i stayed behind to get ben up and fed before we headed up there to see chris off!
the race took place in our neighborhood and benefitted our local elementary school's literacy program.   can't beat that with a stick.  ben and i made it to the start line seconds before the runners left.  i found the top of chris's head (red hat) but ben couldn't locate daddy in the crowd before the race started.
which resulted in this mood.   it improved immensely once he found a tree to hang in.

what a stud.
gig 'em and good job, daddy.  
we love you and are so proud of you.


  1. way to go chris! what an accomplishment. all those early gym mornings paid off, huh?

    i bet it pumped him up so much seeing you and ben there supporting him. good job, sweet family!
