My Kids Completed Two 5K Races in One Week!

I'm so proud of my two kiddos!  This is a "Mommy Bragging" moment!  

Last weekend the kids, my mom, sister-in-law and I participated in a 5K Fun Run/Walk where I grew up called Be Fit, Have Fun

Chandler ran with his Aunt and he came in 4th place OVERALL!  Three runners finished before him, two were high school teachers and the other a high school senior.  At just 10 years old, that is a major accomplishement!

Today, the kids and I participated in another 5K Fun Run/Walk called Leashes and Laces.  It was a fundraising walk to raise money for a local Police K9 Unit.  This was a dog friendly walk, dogs everywhere.  The kids had so much fun watching, petting and giving treats to all the dogs.

This photo was taken after today's race.  They received medals with puppy paw prints on them!

What's next?  A 10K, that's right!

**Hubby hasn't been able to join us because he's still recovering from knee surgery.  Next year, for sure!
