Pocatello Marathon

A few weeks ago I woke up and asked the kids if they wanted to go to the Big Blackfoot annual parade, or if they wanted to run in a race. They both shouted, "run in a race". So we hustled down to Pocatello where Jeff, Angela and Kiley were running the Pocatello Marathon. Kimm was also registered for the 5K. Luckily, I was able to still register the kids for the kids race.


Not happy about mom taking pictures!

I love this picture!
Dylan at the start of his race... Kate staring down the competition...

And passing her....I was so proud!!! I couldn't believe how fast Dylan and Kate both were. Once they caught on to what was going on and what a running race is all about, they both sped up and flew past the competition. I love my little athletes!
Cuties after their races...I was totally crying I was so proud!


Gold Medals...Fun to do a race right after the Olympics!

Waiting for the big girls to finish their Marathon!

Here they come!

Yippee! So exciting!
Here are the big finishers! What a fun day!!!

That's so awesome! How far did the kids run? I've been thinking of trying to get my 5 year old to run the 1 mile fun run for the 4th of July next year. Way to go, kiddos!

Hey Erin, Found you on Jaime's blog, thought I would say hi! I just ran my first Half Marathon in Provo Canyon in August. It was awesome and now am thinking of the Moab in Mar. Life is crazy. Your kids are darling. I have a Kate too, my only girl of 4 kids. You look as great as ever! Love, Melanie (Tenney) Whiting
