Cole's First Race

Cole has really been wanting to run a race since he's been to a few with us in the past few months. We decided to sign him up for a fun run and did the Santa Run this morning. 

Here he is getting his bib pinned on. 
 He really wanted to wear his race tshirt. It was very chilly this morning...in the 30s!  Why couldn't it have been like this last weekend for the Tulsa Run?

Tony ran with him while my Mom, Cate, and I watched and cheered. 
Here are a few pics of the start. 
We think there were maybe 40 or so people doing the fun run. They raced 8/10ths of a mile. Just out and back. 

Here they are coming down the hill and into the finish. 
Cole finished in 8:37. He was definitely within the first 6 to 8 kids to finish and the youngest we saw. He ran the whole way! Tony said he said his legs were hurting but he kept running all the way to the finish. He had the cutest look of determination on his face!
He did awesome and we are so proud of him!  We celebrated with an Old School Bagel breakfast afterwards and a good afternoon nap!
