Army Run

Yesterday we took part in the Army Run. Two years ago it was the first time I did a half marathon, this year, it was my first time walking a 5K with Baby J.

Surprisingly, we got there late. We were walking from where we parked to the race start and passed all the runners. Ah well. I had the course to myself for the first kilometer and a half until I started catching up with people.

It was a nice walk - chilly at first but it warmed up as the hour passed. Baby J entertained me by trying to put on his hat and throwing his water out of the stroller.

We split the post-race banana and bagel afterward and then went home. Baby J was asleep before we were out of the parking garage.

J was a trooper and did the half marathon while battling a cold and possible sinus infection and not having trained. His feet are mangled, but otherwise he did really well.

We spent the rest of the day huddled at home dealing with some sort of stomach bug. Not a pleasant end to the day.


  1. I've never done any marathon of any type. I should walk one though sometime...I just cannot run to save my life!

  2. I think it's awesome you ran with the baby. I don't know if that is a usual thing, but I think the message is GREAT.
