Milo's Big Race

On Saturday morning Milo took part in the Jr. Dillo 1/2 Mile Run that was part of the Capital 10K weekend festivities. Mommy had a job fair to attend so we brought her stunt double Auntie Barbara.

The race was a fun run... and parents were encouraged to run along with their kids. I asked Milo if he wanted me to run with him and he said yes.

So when we hit the starting line we took off and hand-in-hand ran the entire 1/2 course. With about 100 yards left Milo said "Dad, can you carry me?" I said "Milo, the finish line is right there... you can do it... let's finish strong."

So we crossed the finish line in 5:47 and hugged and high-fived. It was awesome!

(Cue teary eyes)

After we got home Milo came up to me and said "I love you Dad... thanks for helping me win!"
