Today Doodle ran her first 5K, a trial for the one that she will run in a few weeks surrounded by 1,000 or so other runners. I was worried that she wouldn't be able to finish because she has been hit hard with an allergy-induced cough this week but she ran strong, finishing in the first third of the 20 or so girls. Rain began to fall just as the girls started to run, but no one complained. Doodle's running buddy both for this trial and the upcoming race is our neighbor C who accompanied us on the trip to China to bring Tootle home almost 4 years ago. C ran cross country and the 2 mile race in high school so she's a great role model.
Doodle will continue to hijack this blog through tomorrow. She turns 11 in a few short hours!
