Kaio's first race!

Jason and I have been runners for more than 8 years now. We clock in around 15miles per week. The kids are used for us running, doing races, going to buy running gear etc. Kaio's school had a fundraiser race and we thought it would be a great opportunity for him to get started. He choose Jason to run with him and signed up. The day is the race we had horrible weather: cold, rainy, windy. But we went, all bundled up. They ran the 1mile race and Kaio did awesome. Kaio runs fast, but sprints for 20yards and this was the first longer run. So he sprinted, walked for 10secs, sprinted, walked for 10secs.. And finished his first mile in 10:53mins (which is great) he was 5th in his age group (great accomplishment as it was the day after his 6th birthday!) we were very proud!!!
Josefine and I waited eagerly at the finish line.. She was very cute as she saw people arriving and kept saying - 'whet is Kaio?!' After every person that crossed the finish line.
After the race, everyone wet, we want home for a warm soup and hot chocolate!!! A fun evening!!
