Finishing off the track season!

Gage finished up his track season this past Tuesday running in the 800 meter at the 9th grade conference. As only an 8th grader this was something he was excited about running in. He ran a personal best of 2 minutes 19 seconds and got 13th overall. Again pretty impressive for an 8th grader. Now he is taking a much needed breather before he and I run in the 5k next week. I ordered me some calf compression socks to help with my shin splints. This is one reason I hate longer distance running.

Gage won his 5k!

I haven't been on the ball with posting all his running stuff. He had a 5k this morning hosted by his school and he won! It was even raining and it didn't phase him. He is scheduled to run with the Freshman on Tuesday in the 800 meter this next week for conference. He was one of a few 8th graders invited. This will be his last track meet of the school year. He has placed in most of his races. He and I will be running together in another 5k in 2 weeks. I don't know what I was thinking when I agreed. I haven't ever officially ran in one. I think I walked one once. 

Here he is getting his award but not really stopping to let his dad take a pic.

On a side note his art that was sent in for that contest ended up being chosen for Best in Show of all 8th graders in Arkansas. We go down to Little Rock on May 2nd for his ceremony. This is pretty big deal apparently. Boy has some talent!

Happy Easter!

Sadly I am behind the camera, so I am not in any.

Egg hunt yesterday. Ridlee did awesome!

This was taken at Gage's track field as we were picking up yesterday morning. I literally parked, rolled back my sunroof and took it with my phone. I love these.
