Our Annual Family 5K - 2014

If you follow my blog or have read previous posts (thank you very much if you have!) you know that each year our family tries to do a 5K race together. It also seems to be that we end up doing a different race every year, and while I'd like to stick with one, it just doesn't work out that way.

This year though, I remembered early enough about the Miracle Bunny Trail that happens around Easter. My cousin has helped with this race each year and from what I've heard, it's a great family race event. They even have a MINI-Kid's Hop that is only a half mile for the little legs and they get a certificate. If you have little kids, you know how big of a deal that certificate is; it's HUGE for my 5-year-old. They also will have activities for the kids that include an Easter egg hunt, a visit from the Easter Bunny, and other fun stuff.

My husband, the baby girl, and I will do the 5K walk while my son does the fun activities. My son wasn't concerned at all with the half mile distance - his only concern…does he have to hop for the entire half mile? I love how his mind works, it's so sweet and innocent.

And if you are wondering, no, they don't have to hop at all.

  1. I love the idea of doing a family 5k. I think I'm going to have to go look up which ones are happening around here this year so we can do one too :)

    1. I want to thank you for reading and commenting on the post. Just a quick piece of advice, make sure the course is relatively flat. :) Our family did one a couple years ago and we didn't know that there would be so many hills, our little guy needed carried…A LOT!

  2. Thanks for the free advertisement! I'm glad you guys can come this year :) Eli is excited for Easter too!
