We Run Glow Run--Saturday, August 31, 2013--North Liberty, Iowa

Scott asked me back in May if I would register him for a race with a finishing medal. I told him about this awesome race that WE RUN, see link here, an awesome running store in North Liberty was putting on the end of August. He agreed he wanted to do this race so I signed him up and started training him to run.

 As the days drew closer Scott was pretty sure he didn't want to run. I think he was just nervous.  A lot of my friends were also doing this race.  Jason and Alyssa were volunteering at the race so they didn't run this race.  Scott and I were supposed to run together, however when the race started Scott took off like a bullet.  I could see the top of his head, but then he disappeared.  Since this race is at night I totally lost him.  I hoped the whole time he would be okay and not get hurt.

 I ended up staying with Deb and her daughter Danielle to run the race since I couldn't find Scott.  Danielle and I were determined to help Deb PR her 5k time.  She did end up doing that in the end.  Scott did a fabulous job and now wants to do another race with the whole family.  I was so proud of him and can't wait to do another race with him. The pictures tell the rest of the story.

Scott at home all dressed and ready to do his first 5K.  It was
starting to get really dark out and my camera doesn't like to
take nice pictures when it's half dark, so the lighting is off.

my glow run shirt on because I always wait to wear the race shirts after I do the race.
