Ayden and I ran the Mini on Sunday morning. So fun! It was fabulous to share something I love (running, and race days) with Ayden. It was so neat to see him take in the crowd, the music, the balloons, and the excitement with big eyes, and to be filled with adrenaline for a race together. He was competitive: he kept urging me to 'pass more people!' So cute. Every participant got a ribbon, which was fabulous. He is very proud of his ribbon, and I am very proud of him. We ran almost the whole 2.5 K. At the start, Ayden, being less experienced, took off too quickly and burnt out about a half kilometer in. He then wanted a break--and not just to walk, but to sit down! He sat on the curb for about 10 seconds before hopping up and saying, 'Okay, let's go mommy!' and running again. So cute! After that he paced himself a little more, and we walked maybe a total of 30 more seconds. We got our names in the Vancouver Sun! Here are some pix.
