Cotton Row 2010

We woke up bright and early Memorial Day to watch Thomas run in the 10K Cotton Row run.  This was his fourth year to run this particular race and it's always such a fun one to run in and to watch.  The race goes right through our neighborhood so me and the kiddos walked down the road to catch daddy at the beginning of the his 6.2 mile run.  In the past, there has been no training whatsoever involved but this year he actually ran a couple of times a week before the race because he was trying the break 45 minutes.         
Go daddy!
This was right before he got to the finish line.  Did he break 45?
Oh yes...he did.  Time:  44:42.  He placed #166 in the race and that was out of about 2000 runners.  I think he placed #16 out of his age group.  Not too shabby.  We were very proud.   
Thomas signed the boys up to run the 5K this year and they did so good.  
This was Carter right after the race started.  He was soooo excited!
Here he is almost to the end.
This is his face when he's trying to hold his smile in (because he sees me taking a picture of him)....and then he starts to run a little faster to the finish.
Here's Camden finishing the race.
His face reminds me of what mine use to look like when I played sports in High School.  I was always the one with the bright red face.
I was so proud of these guys.  They ran 3.1 miles and finished the race smiling...I think they were mostly excited about the free food at the end.

What fun! Thomas did great and that's neat that the boys got to run and participate, too. I was a little sad we didn't get to run this year. There's always next year. :)

Charlie ran this race as well. Some of the guys at NASA had a "team." I can't believe that your boys ran a 5K! That is awesome!! Makes me feel really out of shape!
