Nana was off work that day, so she joined Mike and me (who both worked from home so that we could attend) to cheer Ben on.
It was chilly but not freezing (in the 50s I think). We were a little cold on the sidelines, but Ben kept himself warm using up all his energy. And boy has this kid got energy. Here he is getting ready to start the run.
They got to run onto the field through this big inflatable tunnel, which was a cute touch.
Here he is in action (in the red headband, which all the kids were given along with the t-shirts). I have to say, he's fast. He was lapping a lot of kids.
After 45 minutes, the run was complete and Ben had tallied 49 laps (plus we all walked a 50th lap together.) I took a picture of his shirt after he'd run more than 35 laps, thinking he was done. But nope, he just got a drink of water and then kept running until they called time.
The kids headed back in, giving the Homestead Huskie a high-5 and stopping for a class photo.
