Every child that participated (even the one that was carried) was handed a medal when they crossed the finish line. Here's Gogurt with his "serious running" face on or is it his "i'm about to hyperventilate" face? Not sure.
After the trauma from the race, Poptart decided she would get down and try to enjoy the rest of the day. Now this is what she calls fun.
Overall we had a very good experience at Ham Jam.
And I absolutely cannot end without giving a high-five congrats to my Mother who came in 3rd place in her age division for walking in the 5K (that's almost 4 miles!)! I'm so proud of her! She has inspired me to consider entering the 5K next year, walking of course, but walking 5K by myself would be better than carrying a 40-pound child a mile!
