After the "older" kids had their races, it was time for everyone's favorite part of the day... the awards! I say this sarcastically as at most races, the only people who stick around are the people who are receiving awards and even they usually arent all that excited to be there, and then jet as soon as their names are called. Not so with the kids! They were genuinely thrilled to get to go up on stage and receive their awards. In addition to trophies, Bruce and I were placing Timex hats on each of the award winner's heads, which really got them pumped!
All in all, I thought it was a really successful event. Almost 300 kids raced and I didnt see a single one disappointed. Rounding out the day, Bruce, George, and I went to lunch at Chipotle... cant beat that!
