Something fun about the race was that they had motivational signs all along the run course. There were even math problems written in sidewalk chalk along the route. My favorite quotes from the signs were:
"Don't sweat the petty stuff and don't pet the sweaty stuff."
"We know you peed your pants. That's okay."
"I bet you wish you had your bike back now."
Something fun that we did as a family was have race weekend shirts made. We wore the shirts for my race and also my sister and brother-in-law's race the next day. Our shirt says Alright^3 otherwise known as Alright, Alright, Alright. Hopefully you can hear Matthew McConaughey saying that from Dazed and Confused because that just makes it so much better!
Below are some of my favorite pics from the race/birthday weekend!
