This is the third year I have ran a 5k with her. This year she was very 
excited. Sprinting across the living room floor telling us 
she was going to win. She did start out really fast and probably ran 
a good 1/4 mile at that pace. Through out the race she would run
really hard then jump in the stroller for a "rest" while I pushed her along.
She would ring her bell and yell out "GO Grandma Go Grandma"
After she would catch her breath she would jump out again and start sprinting.
I of course loved every minute of it.
We did finish strong! 
At the finish line a spectator yelled out at us that we were the first stroller to finish.
So I guess we did WIN.
It was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday.


  1. This is great. I'm always amazed at the overall fitness of kids. They can just roll out of bed and run a 5K, no training necessary. :)

  2. Happy belated birthday!!!! And WOW! How awesome! You are such a great Grandma! Congrats to you and your grand daughter on finishing the 5k! I also noticed that black truck is still looking very shiny! ;)

    1. yes Terri unlike yours ours isnt a "working" truck, mostly just for plesure.
