When I was pushing him in the stroller he continued to push me (pic below) with his words of encouragement. When it was empty I was wondering, why did I bother with the stroller?!
He did need to take a break (to have energy for his kids run) and it held our water and snacks. He was intrigued by the water break at mile 1 but we skipped that one. He jumped out for Mile 2 and grabbed his water with pride. All smiles, took a sip and cautiously dumped it on his head.
He finished strong with pride – surrounded by an amazing cheering squad !
The kids race was still to follow, which he loved as well running with kids his age.
We even hit the after party ( free food and golf video game 😉 at Waxy O’Connors – Foxboro… Can’t wait to get back for a ‘real’ drink and some of those fries!
Much love to the YMCA staff for organizing another fun event!!
