Still working on catching up…during homecoming weekend Malone conducts a 5k and a kids fun run.
This was Sawyer and Nora's 1st race. It was a cold morning and we didn't know the distance of the fun run so we were a little unprepared but they still had tons of fun.

|Ready, set, go…Sawyer was fast out of the blocks|
They ran around the track once. Sawyer started out quickly, but after about 200 he had slowed down. I took this picture on the back side of the track. I was cheering Sawyer on and he said "Mommy, I'm trying but it's so cold!" :) But he persevered and finished strong. Poor Nora hurt her foot the night before so I wasn't sure she would even run, but she got caught up in the excitement. She had to take a few breaks but she too finished strong!
And the best part…the candy after the race!
