Sharing the things that I love, with the ones that I love, makes my heart oh so happy! This morning my son and I ran the Red, White, and Blues 5K in Portland thanks to the fantastic peeps at Nuun Hydration and the Better Series. A huge THANKS for making this race possible and helping create a wonderful memory with my son!
We could not have asked for a better morning for a race!! It took place right in downtown Portland on the waterfront. The sun was shining, the temp was perfect, and it was great to see a good turnout for the inaugural event. Kuddo’s to the Better Series for putting on such a stellar race! Other than the course being a bit short (about a quarter-mile according to my watch), it was well-organized and the medals were fantastic for a 5k! The shirts are pretty sweet too!
If I recall correctly, I was 17 years old when I ran my first 5K. I find so much delight in watching my kids discover running at a way younger age than I was when I started. It is my hope that they will enjoy it as much as I have and will continue to run as they get older.
I’m pretty proud of this guy!!
