Running as it passes through the generations!

I am so thankful that my dad taught me to enjoy running, and encouraged me to do my best!
He is still running...slow...but he finishes without stopping!
Here is the race that my daughters got to run with their GRANDPA!!!

For warm ups they did some high knees and then spent the rest of the time learning to whistle with a leaf!

Right before the start...the two little ones stayed behind with me and Grandma!

Grandma helped them look for alligators!

I was so proud of these two little girls!
This is Brooke's 3rd 5K...and she did not encouraged Chelsea to not only finish her first 5K...but to do it without stopping!

It was a fantastic experience!

Then we went and had Ice Cream...

Tried to catch a Hornet...

And listened to good music!

I even got to meet some Blog readers...actually their sister Blogs....

Finally we thought it was probably about time to go find Grandpa and finish with him!
So we all ran back...and came to the finish line with him...

He never stopped!
