Bryant's first 5K-Riverwalk Run

Bryant has been running some here and there just to get some exercise. He does not do any kind of organized sport anymore. He is one of those big brain, musically inclined souls. Not sure where that talent came from, but he is a treasure. He is in the Pace High Marching Band, which is so much more involved than I could have ever imagined.
 This was a spur of the moment decision for him to run the race. It is held in a nearby town, Milton, along the river. I thought Bryant might enjoy the process of running in an actual race. The good thing about this race is that it is held in the later afternoon, which meant he didn't have to get up early. I wasn't running this one as I was suffering from a fractured tibia, but it was lots of fun to cheer him on.
Bryant, ready to run his first 5K.
 We were ready and watching for him, but he came several minutes ahead of what
we had anticipated. All of the sudden, Blake was screaming, here he comes, here he comes!
I think he actually enjoyed the race aspect of the run. He was booking it at an
8:51 pace. Wowzer! He went into it a little reluctantly, but I feel like it was a
boost of confidence for him. So, there we are, the proud family!
