Catherine's 1st Race at the Chickamauga Chase

This past weekend Scott and the kids participated in the Chickamauga Chase held at the Battlefield in Chickamauga, GA. Catherine was so excited because this was her first real race!! She got a new pair of tennis shoes and everything!

Harbin and Catherine both ran in the Kiddie-K which was about 0.63miles. In every other race that Harbin has done, I have been able to run along side of him, but in this one they went on their own. I thought Catherine might back out since it was her first race, but as you can see in the pics, she just ran along and did great! At some point she tripped and fell and skinned her knees (apparently brother was helping her by holding her hand and she can't run as fast as him quite yet). One of the volunteers helped her up and said she just took her hand and they kept running. She finished the race and was proud of her "bloody knees".

Scott ran in the 15K (9.3 miles) and this was his longest running race yet. He finished in (what I think) an incredible 1 hour and 7 minutes and ranked 6th in his age division.

I am sure this is just the start to race results for this upcoming summer season, so stay tuned for more incredible running results!

The mom.
