Big House Big Heart 5K: Mission Accomplished

We did it! Team Tomalia completed the Big House Big Heart 5K race! Little Zander got his personal best time at 1 hour and 5 minutes.

Here he is preparing for the race. Such focus!

At the entrance to the race there was music and a big balloon arch marking the starting line.

And we're off!

I decided to make Z his own shirt with a race number painted on, as he would certainly eat anything I tried to pin on him.

Crossing the finish line.

See? We really were there in the Big House. The race was really well organized, with free food and drinks at the finish line and everything. It was my first time in the stadium, so it was pretty cool to run through the tunnel onto the field. Probably the closest I will ever get to playing football!

Thank you to everyone who donated! It was a great event to participate in, and all your donations helped to raise money for a wonderful organization.
