We briefed Bodie on what to do... run to the bikes and look for Dad, who will have your bike. I went with him to the start line. A man explained the rules and made the mistake of asking if there were any questions. 4 year olds like to talk... so after a few minutes of questions/statements from the kids the whistle blew and they were off! Lots of parents were running with the kids, but I told Bodie I would see him when he was on his bike. I was little concerned he'd stop running, b/c it was crowded.. but he was running!
The bike ride was a struggle b/c it was on wet grass. But he persevered and didn't give up! He zoomed down the soap covered water slide and ran through the finish line. He was a very proud boy.
This event is awesome for promoting healthy lifestyles. Being healthy starts young, so I was very happy to see such a cool event for toddlers. And it was only a $2 entry fee!
