After training for at least a month today (Oct. 27th) was Nasir's BIG DAY. It was time for the Marine Corps Healthy Kids Fun Run. My son has wanted to do a race of his own since his Dad did the Warrior Dash, Spartan Race and Tough Mudder this year. Dad heard his cry and signed him up for a 1 mile race. Lucky for our son his dad is a former distance runner (HS & College) and he used to Coach Track. By all accounts he was learning from the "best". The race was a one mile event just for fun and every kid got a t-shirt, medal, and a snack bag at the end.
On the car ride he read a Sonic the Hedgehog book
