Last week Skylar's school put on their annual Jog-a-Thon where the kids run as many laps as they can, all while raising money for the school. Skylar ran with all the kindergartens, 1st and 2nd graders. We had been having the perfect fall weather, but of course, the day of the Jog-a-thon a heatwave started. Heat or not the kids still rocked it!

Skylar seemed a bit nervous, but once the horn blew she was off and we didn't see any nerves from her. She was running those laps like it was no ones business.
Dad was timing her lap pace.
Giving Mom the thumbs up!
Jake and I were so proud of Skylar. She only stopped a couple times for a quick water break and would be back at it. I kept telling Jake to tell her to rest for a bit, but by the time I would tell Jake she was already out for another lap. She totally surpass our expectations and did 19 laps in the 30 minutes time. In the end she raised close to $700.00 and definitely earned her medal and popsicle.
