Chloe in her first pair of running shoes
participated in a variety of races:
stretching pre-kids marathon (26.2) at the Buffalo, NY Marathon
Super fast but still finished last only because she ran twice as far as the other kids. Instead of straight from start to finish, she ran-correction skipped and ran diagonally across the racing field. Plus my husband still argues the age groups were not fair.
First turkey trot, this one my husband still razzes me about. He wanted her dressed FAST. I wanted her dressed WARM.
Getting her great big sweet medal at the kids mini Martian Marathon. She ran a whole mile!
This year's turkey trot
and she's pretty sure she can hang with any age group, even mine. "I'm gonna get you mommy!" She yells trying to chase me down on my long runs when her Daddy takes her to the park to play. And while yes, sometimes I let her catch me, even when I don't it doesn't seem to bother her all that much. Almost as if she is the one letting me win and she is ALWAYS ready to try again the next time I run by (oh how we could learn so much from these little ones).
While I hope she does become a runner someday, I must admit that currently, she runs kind of like Phoebe on Friends:
