The Races

The kids participated in their first Wednesday Night at the Races of the summer.  The races were held next door to my office at Bayfront Festival Park.  We arrived at the park a little early.  Sophia and Mike decided to stay at the playground while Sebastian and I handled the registration for the races.  Sebastian also spent some time checking out the course and working on his strategy.  It was a beautiful evening in Duluth for the races, partly cloudy and not too hot.  We even watched a ship go out under the Aerial Lift Bridge while we waited.  I didn’t bring my camera with, but couldn’t resist snapping a few photos with my new phone.  Pardon the lack of clarity and focus.

Sophia’s race was first.  She is in a tough category this year – 5 & 6 year old girls.  She is one of the youngest in her division with her 5th birthday just over a month ago.  She wasn’t too sure about running alone, so Mike stayed along side her for the race.  I think he slowed her down. 🙂

Sebastian is in the 7 & 8 year old division this year.  Since he will be 9 in October, he is one of the older kids in his division.  He was lined up at the back, but did an awesome job getting up front during the race and passing a lot of kids along the course.  He finished in the top ten.  Way to go!
