Black Light Run

We did another 5K race. The two oldest kids wanted to do it with us. Actually Nathan and Megan kept talking about wanting to run in the race with us the week before, but we told them we'd wait for a little shorter race for them. It was a night run, so we let the kids pick a couple of glow-in-the-dark accessories that they were selling there. Caelan ran with Dad, and Ben ran with me. Ben ran the entire way, except as we walked through one of the powder throwing sections (the first one we ran through but we didn't get any powder on us, so we went slower through the next one). Caelan and Sean finished just about 6 minutes after us. Both kids did great. We told the kids that they had to practice before the race, so the two weeks before we had a handful of family night runs where we jogged up and down our street. After the race we hung out at the music stage for a little while, and then we were ready to head home. Well, we grabbed some food first (and some gelato at Frost...YUM) and then headed home. Good times! We're looking forward to doing the Dirty Dash again this summer.
