who me?

Who’s three feet tall and can run a one mile Fun Run in fourteen and a half minutes?

This guy.

Be afraid. Be very, very afraid.

Who’s almost seven years old and proved that even while stressing herself to the max over defending her 10th place finish in last year’s Fun Run, can still shave more than a minute off of her time and run like a champ?

This girl.

Wait…look harder…look for the nervous energy… There she is.

That girl.

The one who finished her mile in nine minutes and 25 seconds.

And who’s the mama who embarrassed herself by leaping over the spectator tape, chasing her daughter down and encouraging her to “run faster! beat those girls! beat those girls!” as she tried (unsuccessfully) to jockey her way into another top ten finish in the last several meters?

I haven’t a clue.

I most certainly don’t know any women who would behave in that fashion. Why do you ask?

I just read your blog to Uncle Glenn and he said “I miss those kids”. Well that might be true but he doesn’t miss them as much as I do!

Spectator tape was put there to be leaped over…just sayin’!

Love, Love, Love! “She” is a great mommy!

I love the part about jumping over the tape. I don’t have children yet but I would totally be that person!

Oh my goodness! look at that fierce little face! those kiddos are adorable. Way to go sarah on beating your time!

Wow, the last few comments are really annoying. Because it matters if a little kid wins a race, and beats everyone else.
