    Hey Bob! I ran this race last

    Hey Bob! I ran this race last year and its an amazing course. Starts downtown and gets real pretty once you run by the river. Unfortuantely I can't run it this year due to my son's emminent arrival into the world, but good luck and if you need any tips, I am your man.

    Congrats on the new arrival!

    Congrats on the new arrival! I have four and they were each a great blessing. Now one of them is expecting our first grandchild in February. (it was good of her to plan for the birth in the Winter when grandpa isn't running races....... )

    Enjoy!

    Barefoot whenever safe, then

    Barefoot whenever safe, then very loose coverings for all other times, hot cold. I let my kids run around barefoot all the time. Scratches and scrapes are a part of childhood. Let his feet develop these first few years when they are forming the most. Besides, fashion doesn't come into play with young, young kids, so you can get away with it for awhile.
