5K

Jake ran his first 5K today! They had a raffle for two free entries at his work and he won one of them. He wasn't too excited about it, but I think he caught the running bug. He did great! He came in 3rd place in his age division! Emmy and I waited at the finish line for him and we were so proud! Emmy was so excited to see her daddy running toward us. And not only did Jake get a medal, he also won a $25 gift card to WalMart in a raffle! Yes! I guess it was Jake's lucky day :) He thinks he wants to run some more 5K's, and with some training (that's right, he didn't really train, just ran a couple of miles for a couple of days) he might come in first in his age division next time. I told him I'd run it with him next year. That gives me a whole year to prepare :)

Here are some highlights:

We brought Emmy's camera so she could take pictures of daddy. She's taking pic's of some other runners here while we wait for daddy to come.

Here comes Jake! Emmy seriously got SO excited when she saw him!

He was happy to see us routing for him at the finish line :)

Daddy and proud Emmy, still holding her camera :)
