“Mommy, I want to do another race.”
Music. To. My. Ears.
Before my 7-year-old daughter, Milan, made it out of the room I was on the computer signing her up for the AJC Peachtree Jr. road race.
This past Saturday, she and approximately 2,000 other little mini-me’s ran a 3K through Piedmont Park in Atlanta. The race was well organized, well staffed, had great volunteers, a well stocked water stop and the kids seemed to really enjoy it – I know mine did. Take a look.
She’s got her number and is all smiles!
What a thorough little runner, studying the race route.
Giving her a pep-talk before she ran.
Getting a great spot at the start.
Making friends. Her new running buddy, they paced each other throughout the race.
Sprinting to the finish.
Afterwards she showed me where I should go if I were to get lost.
And, of course she was thrilled to get the coveted Peachtree Jr. T-Shirt.
Being the patient mother that I am, I waited until we pulled out of the parking lot on our way home to ask her if she’s ready for the next race; then I waited until I got home to start searching for the perfect one.
