A new family tradition

The whole fam participated in the Capitol 10K race today. It was a blast!

Chase's mom, "Lulo", came into town this weekend and decided to walk the race, which was significant since she just finished her chemo treatments not long ago. It's awesome to have her healthy and active again!

Over 18,000 people participated in the race. It was really crowded the entire 6.2 miles and a little hard to navigate a clunky stroller through all those people. But Elias had a great time and I'm so glad we decided to push him along with us.

The highlight of the race was when Chase had to wait in line for TWENTY MINUTES to use the port-a-potty. Right in the middle of the race! Argh. I got a picture of that while I waited not very patiently on the sidewalk.

Elias got out of the stroller at the end and ran across the finish line. He loved it and kept saying "I won! I won!"

Definitely a new family tradition for the Browns.
