Run through Redlands 1/2 Marathon: Chompy’s Version…

Momma, Daddy and I got up and out of the house early because Momma and I were running the 1/2 marathon today.  We met in downtown Redlands at 7am to make sure we weren’t going to be late.  We made sure that I was all cozy and comfy in my stroller.  We then starting running :)  Then we kept running and running.  We ran all through downtown Redlands, out through the pretty old houses in Redlands, through Prospect Park, and all over the rim of the mountain in Redlands and back down to the Redlands Bowl!  

It was so much fun.  There were lots of people to look at, and animals, and cheering.  I took a nap too.   It took us a little under 3 hours (we aren’t completely sure how long because we took awhile to get to the start line, so we are waiting for the official results, so even though the time says 2:56:19 it may really be a little faster.  We will see).   Official Time:  2:55:20! 

Here are some pictures of the race :)


Getting ready :)


Our friends the Avis’.  They ran really fast.  Hey guys, I’m in the sun.  Help!


The view along the way from Momma’s phone.  Yep, she ran, pushed me, texted Daddy that we were okay, and took pictures :)  I love my momma.



Daddy met us at the end to capture us finishing the race!


That guy was crazy—he ran in long sleeves the whole race.  And with his own CamelBak.


This was a very cool part, because there was lots of cheering and so I looked at all the people :)


We did it! :) 


At the end of the race, all the runners get oranges.  I thought this was a pretty nice reward.

Daddy says this is my other reward :)  He’s so silly! Oh, and in this picture, you can see my secret tooth ;)



Momma and I with our medal!! :) 


We are very proud of each other!!!!
