A Fun Run

We've had a very eventful weekend, so I will be having more than one entry on the same day. It's been so much fun though. Saturday morning we started by going to a Stake 5K Fun Run. They had a 1 mile walk, a 5K run, and a 10K bike. Because Kyson loves riding his big wheel for long distances, I thought he'd enjoy this race, so I asked if he could ride his big wheel for it. It was approved and I got excited. When I found out that they only expected runners to do the 5K and no walkers, I'll admit, I was disappointed. But I figured a 1 mile ride for him is better than nothing. He prefers to do long rides - 4-5 miles. He's even ridden his big wheel to my sister's house.

When we arrived at the race, he was so excited he was riding through the parking lot and dodging people. He kept going and going, right up until the official start. When we did line up for the start, he was so excited he could barely contain himself. After the race, we made it back to the parking lot where it all began and Kyson was so good cheering for every person that came in. He also
drove through the finish line at least 20 times to relive the moment. We started the race with Kris and Kodi. Kodi was pretty upset when she Kyson and I getting ready to go for a walk. She even sat on her little bike that she can barely reach the peddles and wanted to join us, so we grabbed the wagon so she could come too. Unfortunately, she got pretty cranky shortly into it, and because the route went into our neighborhood, Kris just walked her home.

After everyone had finished, they gave out awards and treats. Kyson got a candy bar for being so energetic and a great sport. George Holt stole his big wheel and ran through the finish line with it. Kyson went running after him, laughing the entire time. I wish there were more opportunities like this for him. I think it was so much fun for him and maybe if we can move him to a bike, he'll have many more opportunities to come.
