Luke had another race last weekend, so we happily headed down to
Atlanta's Piedmont Park...
 
 
 
If you're not familiar with the Peachtree Road Race here every July 4th, it's
a huge event.  This was the Peachtree Jr. for kids 2-12, with 3,000 little runners!
 
 
 
Luke was so excited and had a ball, even before the race began...
 
 
 
 He kept asking to "practice", so we found a spot away from the crowd...
 
 
 
 Then it was time for the race, so we found the 6-year old group...
 
 
 
 And, they were off...
 
 
 
Next year he can run the official 3K with the big kids (ages 7-12)!

He is adorable!
Our kids love to run and have always done really well with distance running. I had hoped to get our older boys to join in some race opportunities when they were younger, but they just weren't interested. They love their contact sports.
Maybe there's hope for our littler ones! Looks like a ton of fun.
