Richie ran in the 5K race, and then he ran in the 1-mile fun run with Griffin. Griffin was a nervous wreck all morning that I was going to let him miss his race. He was also nervous that they were going to run out of Gibson's donuts before he got one because I made him wait until after he ran to eat one. Do you blame him? They are the best. And yes, he did wear that patriotic sweatband. I am not sure where he acquired that, but I do think that it helped his pace.
Mamie ran in the 1-mile fun run with her friend Anne Wilkes. They said they finished in about 11 1/2 minutes which is a big improvement from last year!
Margaret ran in the 100-yard dash with her friends Henry, Miller and Bo. She did not hear them say to start, so she was very sad that she was left in the dust. However, she was fine after she got a donut, a pink whale hat and a ballon.
