Freedom Fun Run

We woke up Saturday morning and were out of the house by 5:45am. Why, you ask? For Reagan to run in her very first race, accompanied by her Daddy and her Pops.

We arrived at Landfall Country Club for the Fourth of July Freedom Run, and picked up the registration packages. Reagan declined to wear the t-shirt that was provided since she was already dressed in style in her running shorts/skirt!

Without even being prompted, Reagan began to do her warm-up routine so that she would be good and loose for the run. Of course, this may have had something to do with the hundreds of other people that were doing their own stretches!
The 10KM runners started first, then the 5KMers, and then it was time for the 2KM race. Pops, Ryan and Reagan were ready!
Momsey, Auntie Anna and I stood on the sidelines, cheering “GO REAGAN GO!” while waving the glitter sign that I had made the night before as we watched them run away.
About 18 minutes later, we could see them in sight as they rounded the corner to cross the finish line.
Reagan kicked it into high gear, and crossed the finish line with a big smile on her face. Little did we know at that time, but she had a good reason to be smiling… She won first place for her age division with a time of 18:39, and she also won an award for being the youngest runner in all three of the races that day!
Needless to say, I was and still am one very proud Momma! But I think her Pops may have been the proudest of all!
