The boys had their first race yesterday, and I’m so proud of them! Naturally, I took a ton of pictures.
Before we left the house:
When we got to the race:
Lined up, ready to start:
They’re off! Miles takes an early lead.
The race was half a mile, two laps around the track. I told them it was okay if they walked some of it, since they hadn’t run a half mile straight before. But they were having none of that.
Here comes Miles, first lap almost down! Linus is still right behind him.
Here’s Ollie! (Love that he’s airborne here.)
And at the finish! Miles first!
Followed closely by Linus!
And Ollie, bringing up the rear! His brothers were there waiting to high five him. Aw!
Just the order they should have been born in, actually. Random.
I was so proud of them for giving it their all. They didn’t stop, and they finished a heck of a lot faster than I expected them to. Miles is all ready to do another race, at least. I might sign the two of us up for a two mile race coming up next month. Hope I can keep up with him!
