Samantha, Brett, Jesse & Nathan ran their first race yesterday at the London Children's Museum Family Fun run.
Nathan participated in the Dino Dash - 500 m, while the older kids did the Raptor Run - 1 km. There was also a 5 km run, and a total of about 100 runners participating in all three races.
It really was a fun run, so their races weren't timed or anything. Nathan finished 7th in his race, and Jesse, Samantha, and Brett finished 2nd, 6th, and 8th respectively in their race.
Jesse was quite upset when he crossed the finish line because he accidentally followed the 5 km runners a bit too far, instead of turning around at the tunnel like he was supposed to. He was a good sport about it afterwards, but it was a good learning experience.
We had a lot of fun and they even made the front page in the London Community News:
