1st April Weekend a Success

A little friendly competition before the race.

Levi at the finish line.

Just a few of the younger runners that ran the 2K.

Me with some of the teachers from our school.

Well, as I said in my last post, we have activities scheduled for almost every weekend in April, and yesterday was the first of these activities.

It was our school's annual 2K/5K. I ran this last year, but I just didn't have the time to train properly this year to be able to participate, but even if you do not run, it is a lot of fun just to be there. Our son, who is in the 10th grade did run though, and he did a great job. He came in 4th overall, and 1st in his age division. We are so proud of him. There is a Nigerian man that always comes in 1st or 2nd, and our son's goal was to beat him. He said he did not even care about a trophy or a medal, but he wanted to beat this man. As you can see in the picture of them together above it was just a little friendly competition, but in the end, this man came in 2nd, and Levi came in 4th.

The weather was so nice for this event. The day before was very hot; I think in the 90s, but yesterday it was a little cloudy, and it may have gotten into the 80s, but all in all a beautiful day for the race.

Hope you enjoy the pictures.
