Colony City Chase




Activities for the weekend included 3 birthdays, Mother's Day, a wedding reception, baseball practice and The Colony City Chase 5K/1 mile fun run.  My son, Reid had pretty good luck running in his first ever mile race back in March, so when the local Rotary Club put on its annual event, we signed the boy up.  It proved to be a good thing as Reid won the one mile race going away with a time of just over 7 minutes.  He got a medal and a first place trophy.

I just got a new cell phone and I have not quite figured out how to work it, therefore the following video may be one of the worse ones you have ever seen.  If you turn your head sideways, you can see just how much by boy smoked the field as there is not another runner in sight as he crosses the finish line.  I was one very proud Daddy and he was able to give his Mom one pretty cool Mother's day present.

Way to go Reid!  Daddy is very proud of you!
