The Running Bug, that is.
Jackson begged Willie to let him run the 5K on Saturday with him.
And after initially saying no, we caved and assumed he would be walking right after the start.
Well...we were wrong.
He ran for almost the entire way...walking to catch his breath a couple times.
I mean, he WAS keeping up with Willie and his long legs!
I am so proud of them both!
I know it was much tougher for Willie to run at Jackson's pace, but he did it.
And I would say the look of pride on Jackson's face was well worth it.
On an additional note, this race was a benefit for a local mother who has Stage 3 Melanoma.
