This morning Elizabeth and I ran in The Romp, an annual 5K in my hometown. My brother started doing this with his son Wyatt (below with Elizabeth) when he was only 4 and invited us to join him last year. Elizabeth was psyched to participate again this year. Wyatt smoked her by two minutes; he is one determined and quick little runner! But Elizabeth did trim six minutes off of last year's time trying to keep his pace. We all had a great time. It was hot, but tolerable, and it's always wonderful to hear about the current crop of students from my hometown and their successes in track and field; the proceeds from The Romp go to scholarships for graduating seniors who've excelled on and off the race track.
Here are some photos, mostly for my mom and dad since they couldn't be there this year!
And, for both grandmothers, (and other suckers for babies),
a gratuitous photo of the baby girl all dolled up for Memorial Day!
