This morning my wife, Tiffany our Nutritionist and our two babies joined 200 other kids and parents at
The Boys and Girls club’s of Scottsdale 5K family fun walk/run. So we packed up the truck and left for Eldorado park about a 15 minute drive from our CrossFit Scottsdale location on 92nd & Shea.
Half asleep with a cup of coffee and a leftover zone bar. I unloaded the beast and put are gear under the the double stroller. Telling myself to just enjoy the walk with my family. But then I saw one… another dad with a stroller… and another. So I started to get that fire in my belly that burns like a wild fire called COMPETITION.
It’s what makes us better at what we do!!! After a light stretch I think I touched my toes once and yawned twice we started. My original goal of walking turned to jogging turned to top 10 finish turned to grabbing my ipod putting on a little Kanye “STRONGER” strapping the kids seat belts on tight and trying to WIN this thing. 3.2.1 GO. That was the last of my wife and Tiff I would see for 24 minutes and 17 seconds. 19th place overall and more importantly 1st stroller dad across the finish line. My wife ran it in 34:15 running an extra mile by mistake and Tiffany coming in at 34:14 with a bloody sock and facial expression that read
“What happened to the walk?” Great job to everyone. Especially the kids who finished the race and of course my 8 month old daughter who ran her 1st 5K.
