My husband is very supportive of all of my races. He has sat in the rain with all of the kids while I participated in a triathlons, he has sat the van with the kids while they napped during races, he has driven the race route of a 10k with the windows down while he and the kids cheered me on. He is such a sweet guy! He has done a tri with me years ago as a team and has done a few 5k’s himself or with the kids and occasionally as a family.
Once again he has shown what an amazing husband and father he can be by participating in a great 5k with the kids and I. He didn’t just participate though, he carried a baby on his back in addition to a child on his hip at multiple times throughout the race. Obviously we had to walk this one with all 7 of us
participating and YES, we had a double jogging stroller but they changed their minds as to whether they wanted to ride, run or walk. Regardless of what the kids were thinking my husband was flexible and would pick them up and carry them when they wanted him to. He was such a trooper!
If you ever get a chance to do a color dash it’s a fun 5k. I opted to use a rain cover on the stroller which was a big help to keep the kids clean who didn’t want to get all colored. I used zip-lock bags to keep our cameras clean and brought blankets to cover seats for the ride home. Despite the messy nature of the run it’s really a fun 5k that is a good time for the whole family. A great way to stay active, participate in a race and an event where the whole family can join in.
