So Saturday night Carter competed in his first 5K race. For those of you non-runners, a 5K is 3.1 miles. We have been running with the local run club for 9 weeks training for this 5K. Carter is very fast and loves to run. I really hope he keeps it up! On race day I could tell he was very nervous! He was asking me questions like if he would be running on the road, if cars would pass him, if other runners would pass him, etc. I told him yes to all and if someone passes you don't give up just keep pushing. I knew he could do it, and just let me tell you, HE DID IT alright!!! I had already told him that Momma may not be able to run with him. And that it was okay, I was trying to prepare him for when I was ahead of him. Well that didn't go over so well, because he said he was going to beat me!!!!
That afternoon I was really worried about the race. Here in South Central KY we have been effected by the heat wave along with everyone else. The race was to begin at 7:00 and when we got out of our car at the park the temperature was 101 degrees!!!!! YIKES!!!!!!
