Happiness is helping this dude get his running mojo back.
After Rocky Ridge, I had some repair work to do.
(disclaimer-we LOVE Brazen's Rocky Ridge, but it is really tough and not incredibly fun if you are 7 and have short little legs)
Myles needed a fun race.
My only goal was to make sure he had fun and ended the day wanting to do another race.
He's a sucker for a costume, so that was what I started with.
We are Super....something. Not sure, other than it was just fun.
I also have on a cape, but it's black, so it's harder to see.
He's wearing boxers, I converted a pair of boxers into a skirt.
We had a blast!
Above, he's running with Sophie and her running friend, Blythe. Note the coolness of the back of the race shirts with the butterfly wings!
My happy boy!
We ran, skipped, hopped, danced, leaped over and off of rocks, passed people and made funny faces at them, sang inappropriately loud...whatever we needed to do to get a wave of happiness flowing, we did. We were a bit of a roving 2 person party.
It did help that when we first arrived, he hit the hot coco hard. There were a few refills of cups of marshmallows covered in whip cream while we waited to start.
That will always increase his "happy" level.
We really did have fun and I'm so glad he had a better run this weekend than last weekend!
I secretly can't wait for another opportunity to wear my super-mom skirt and hair! I kind of love it!!
I'll have a complete re-cap post up later in the week.
