The Color Run came to town this weekend and brought with it family and friends who joined in as “Team Flappin’ Wengs.” Uncle Nathan, Aunt Emily, and two of Em’s closest friends met us in the mall parking lot, all geared up to endure a few miles of laps around the lot and repeated dustings of rainbow shades.
Molly was super-pleased to participate in a themed run with buddies. She’s definitely realized how many opportunities exist for runners to come together in the name of fitness and fun, and that helps her appreciate the consistency of training and excellent coaching she has received from her cross country and track experiences. I’m really happy about that and love to cheer her on from the sidelines, although I do wish I could share that running fever. Finn kept me company curbside yesterday, snapping his own photos with his iPod, but he’s already talking about beginning his own “extracurricular” running adventures next year, starting with the CarX Crazy K!
