Today AJ finished his first 5K!! He walked the entire course (although I was told he did it in a very squirrelly way). He wasn’t very fast, at 1:17:35 he finished dead last. Then again you there is a saying in race circles that says “dead last is better than did not finish.” I (John) did ok at a time of 43:25. Certainly not my best time, but not my worst either. Denise followed AJ for most of the race and finished at 1:16:30 (after I finished I rested a bit than walked back and met Denise and AJ on the race course). AJ did very good in this first race. He didn’t whine at all and was happy the entire time. He even helped another kid along that wasn’t doing so well (that kid sprinted at the very end and beat AJ).
he memorial was sponsered by CIM (Chino Institution for Men), it is a medium security prison. The rest of the memorial was very fun they had a car show and many different booths that you could explore (and it was all free!). AJ in particular liked the bounce house. Here is a video of the car show:
