My idea of spectating

This morning Ryan ran the Orthocarolina 10k ... I ran it back in 2012, days before breaking my wrist.

Naturally Mason and I tagged along to cheer Ryan on. Except I'm not one to just sit around and wait for the race to be over ... I took this morning as an opportunity to spectate while getting a few miles in of running.

After the start of the race, Mason and I jogged to Harris Teeter (right before mile 3) to catch Ryan run by and to use their bathroom. Potty training has been tricky but I always make an effort to find a bathroom the moment Mason says he has to go.

We saw Ryan run by and he looked strong. We cheered on some more runners then headed back to the race area to wait by the finish line.

We ran a total of 3 miles in 30 minutes then waited for Ryan to finish.

I had forgotten how hard it is to push the jogging stroller especially with an almost 40 pound toddler in there.

After the race Mason got a photo with the Charlotte Hounds mascot, Blue.

Ryan finished in under 50 minutes which was awesome since he's done zero training and traveled this week. Makes me wish I had a race on the books.
