Dawson's First Half Marathon!

Today I ran side by side with my favorite 8-year-old for 13.1 miles! Best race EVER!

Stories and more pictures to follow when we're not busy celebrating and basking in the glow of such a mammoth accomplishment.

Way to go buddy!

Congrats!! That is so great. I have done races with my 9 yr old and they are, by far, my favorite races that I have done. Cannot wait to hear more.

I was so surprised to see the two of you yesterday and so impressed with Dawson's accomplishment! He was an inspiration to my little guy who is now asking when he can "run with the runners" again. I especially loved seeing him touch the "mile 9" sign and give a fist pump. It almost made me cry. I can only imagine how proud you must have felt. Congrats to both of you!
