We had some great weather for my home meet last weekend. But, better than weather (and after hosting in the rain, that is a big deal), MY DAD CAME TO MY MEET! He has been my biggest fan throughout my running career - driving a dozen hours just to watch my 20 minute race. But having him at my home meet was a great experience. He got to see me in race director mode, my team race, me coach, and actually race the course himself! It was such an honor to have him out in Gypsum for this experience.
Dad won his age group!
Macklin decided to do the Kids 1K race this year, instead of the Fun K (about 300 feet). Mack and his buddy Briggs did a great job, with Papa and Briggs' dad in tow, they raced around the over half mile course! I was one proud momma! Macy, on the other hand, is not pictured since she cried through the whole Fun K :(
The kids were so excited to host Papa! Thanks for coming! Not sure how I would have made it through this weekend without you!
