Run with the Cows

You’ve heard of running with the bulls, right?  Well tonight Trenton and I ran with the cows – the Chick-Fil-A cows.

We ran the Run with the Chick-Fil-A Cows Family Fun Run at Port Warwick.  It was a 1/2 mile race.  I wasn’t sure how Trenton would do, but he loved it.

Pre-race with Mommy.

Meeting the cows with his buddies Kendall and Jarrison.

Gotta make sure that you warm up before a race!

We’re blurry because we were running so fast!

Charlotte enjoyed watching the race with her JJ.  She’ll be out there racing before we know it!

Post-race wearing our medals!

The race was great.  Trenton ran almost the whole time (a very slow run), and only walked a few steps.  He wanted to hold my hand most of the way, but he did let go for a while and had some fun running on the lines in the middle of the road.  The numbers that we wore also had our names written on them, and there were people all along the route cheering for Trenton by name!  If Trenton wasn’t the youngest runner there, he was close to it, but there were still people who finished behind us.  I never thought I’d be happy with a 7:55 1/2 mile, but with this little guy running next to me, it was the best 1/2 mile I’ve ever run!
