In June, the kids participated in a fun race sponsored by our church. Krew and Everly were in the 1/2 mile kids race and Ky and Kade ran the 5K.
Everly wasn't actually registered to race until 10 minutes before the race started because she insisted on running. Not wanting to crush her willingness to try something new, we signed her up.
Krew was so fast!!! I had no idea how fast he was. I was just hoping that he would run the whole time and not give up. Not only did he run the whole time, but he ran his hardest the entire 1/2 mile.
Out of about 30 kids, ages 2-10, Krew finished in 3rd place! And look above, he was way ahead of the 4th place runner! I was shocked! I could not believe that he beat all but 2 boys, even the kids that are older.
Way to go Krew!!
My goal for Everly was to not fall down, or cry. I thought it would be awesome if she would run half way without asking to be done. She surprised me too, by running the whole way. Not that she was super fast, but she didn't even stop to walk once. She was super proud of herself for finishing. Way to go Everly!
I believe this is the 3rd year the twins have run this 5K. They didn't train at all, which makes me jealous because when I run a 5K, I have to do some serious training to be able to run it at all.
