Since Mom was going to be doing the pushing, here's a picture of her and me before the race. . .
I had sooo much fun! I kept wanting to put my feet on the front tire, and for some reason Mom didn't like that. She kept saying I was making it hard to push. Here's a picture of us just past the half way mark. . . .
Not really, we just did this for fun and had a friend take a picture. Mom pushed me the whole way, with me laughing and teasing her with my foot on the tire occasionally. Mom decided that I really did need some exercise, so about a block before the finish, I got out of the jogger and walked, helping Mom push the jogger. About 20 feet before the finish line Mom got in the jogger and I pushed her to the finish line!. I was so awesome!!! Everyone was cheering me and I was beaming from ear to ear. I finish 2nd place for men in the walk!!!!! I was so excited and loved all the attention. At the awards ceremony, I got my picture taken, and I won a gift certificate for a free foot bath & reflexology massage. How cool is that...you all know how I love FEET!!! I also got a certificate that entitles me free entry to next year's race! Mom's trying to convince me to let her have the foot massage. Maybe I'll let her as long as I can watch, because I LOVE FEET!!!! Yes folks, it was an awesome day for me. I drank my water, ate my banana and when we got home I ate some gluten-free pizza and took a nap. I was tired after all that exercise, fresh air, laughter, excitement, and just being caught up in the crowd. And the day is still young. I've got lots more exciting Halloween things later today......but that's for the next post.
