The Great Train Race 2016

In lieu of spring sports this year, the boys opted to run The Great Train Race in Fredericksburg.

David ran with the 10-year-olds, since he and Michael had trained together.  This was probably not the best choice, since he is super competitive and was so upset that he was 2nd to last.  I almost quit on the home-stretch, but I ran a little bit with him and showed him that he was almost done, and he finished well.  The above picture was snapped by the newspaper photographer, and you can see him hustling toward the finish line.   

The boys right before they got their chips to run.

Their medals for a job well-done.  Great race, boys!
