Marathon For Kids

Georgia is participating in the Houston Marathon for Kids. When the flyer came home, I knew that it would be just perfect for the little girl who can't wait to run in the big race with her Daddy.

The kick-off was at the University Of Houston on Saturday morning. The kids ran in large groups (they said there were 2200) and Georgia was in the 3rd or 4th group.

She did GREAT! I think they walked a little bit at the end of the run. Steve said it was 440 (?) a little less than a half mile.

Over the next 6 months they run independently, then come back to finish the "marathon" and claim their t-shirt :) Georgia got some cool stuff including a water bottle-it doesn't leak!! Yea!
