Grayson decided now that he's five years old he could run a 5k. He didn't really care that this meant his dad was also going to have to run one! We gave him several chances to change his mind but he's a consistent "yes"...so off we go!
We found a great local event--Ben's Run--that supports a great cause, Children's National Medical Center. To find out more about Ben and his family's inspirational story click here: http://www.bensrun.org/about-ben.html.
Grayson likes the idea of running and raising money to "help children who get sick" so we've set up this fundraising site to help that along. Mom and Dad will be donating so he's already bringing something to the table. Still, we thought it was pretty cool that he was giving this a shot and wanted to see where it takes us.
Thanks everyone and wish Grayson (and his slow chaperone) luck on April 20th!
