Warren’s school has an annual fundraising event: so many laps completed equals cash for the school. Not a Jog-a-thon, like some institutions, but a Move-a-thon because any movement (dancing, skipping, hoola hooping, etc.) around the track is considered an acceptable form of pledge fulfillment. They even get T-shirts. It’s a pretty big deal.

I was so proud of Warren. In 80 degree weather, he ran around the course the entire 30 minutes without complaining. He even smiled most of the time. He was bursting with excitement the night before, and through the morning of, and I think it carried him all the way through the event. He finished 25 laps– hands down the most he’s ever run.

I love his use of red bandana (periodically dipped in the ice bucket) and proper hand positioning throughout, both courtesy of Colin. And I love how sweaty he got. Boy, can that kid sweat.

Too bad all of the pledges he received were capped at $10 or he could of raked in some serious cash.

  1. That is awesome! That is some serious dedication for a kindergartner to make it 25 laps! I’m impressed. (And I love the sprinter hands, too).

  2. Oh, I love that little Warren. He is too adorable and obviously wants to do it right and make his Daddy proud. 🙂
