Kiddo has finished his first marathon, 26.2 miles.  The ING Kids Rock marathon is run for kids they run 25.2 miles over a 6 to 8 week period and then finish the last mile all together.  You can see if there is one locally to you by checking here  .   It was organized very well and ran smoothly. The kids are divided up by grade and go at a certain time, parents can run with the kids or meet them at the finish line. The finish line is a secure zone, only parent and child with matching bibs can leave the area.   There were over 7000 kids at the run yesterday and lots of supporters on the sidelines to cheer the kids on. We had a great time and he is looking forward to the next race already.
