Spencer's Fun Run

Asher slowing down but close to the finish!

All the happy racers.

Spencer is a 6 year old friend of ours who is really into sports and wanted to organize a fun run for his friends so his parents helped make is happen. There was a 1/4 mile race for 3 and 4 year olds and a 1/2 mile race for 5 and 6 year Asher and Anna ran their first race today. They were so excited to be running and not riding in a stroller. Joel tried to jog next to Anna and she yelled at him. "Just for kids Daddy!". They LOVED us cheering for them and were so good at cheering on their friends. It was sooo adorable! Asher was totally worn out but Anna was ready for another race. She is certainly the natural athelete in the family. At one point, Jesse took off down the track...he was ready for the baby race! Running has been such a great thing for all of us to enjoy as a family (well you will have to ask Joel his opinion of "enjoyment").


  1. Looks like fun! Wanna come back for Dracut Old Home Day?

  2. Mary, I can just picture you and Anna running marathons together. It's so great that you got a natural runner in the bunch.
