Fun in the run

Archer and I have spent the last several months getting up early or staying late at school to train for his elementary school's Viking Voyage. Finally, today was the day -- and a more perfect day could not be imagined -- sunshine and 72 degrees on the day before the first day of spring. We opted for the one mile run since we didn't manage to finish a 5K distance during the training period.

We were proud of the fact that we ran the whole way, with a brief stop for water at the halfway mark. Team Fish Hat was in full effect, and Archer got big cheers from the whole school as he approached the finish line, naturally holding his chronograph so that he could stop it as he crossed and get his exact time. (Jim Fixx would be proud.)

Here's a video Noel put together of the big day.
