jonas and gryffin decided that they would really like to run the kid's great race which was held in september. ben worked with them for several months at training. we headed downtown that morning and enjoyed all the games and fun activities available. then i ran with gryffin and ben ran with jonas while grandma and grandpa hung out with portie. it was an awesome experience. as gryffin and i crossed the finish line, my eyes welled with tears. i was so proud of my little dude. i didn't know where jonas and ben were though. they were behind and i came to find out that jonas had taken a tumble at the beginning of the race and was bleeding, but he still wanted to finish his course. i was so proud of my fearless little man. way to go boys! this may be a new family tradition, and maybe next year, portie will run, too.
