Clayton's Fun Run

On October 2nd, Clayton's school had their second annual Fun Run fundraiser.  Clayton was pumped about Race Day!  He prepared for weeks - lifting weights, doing chin up & push ups, and watching what he ate.  I'm not even kidding.  He had a written out work out routine and turned down dessert the night before the run.  He said, "I can't eat sugar, I have a race tomorrow!"  ;)  That boy is a force to be reckoned with when he puts his mind to something.

Wade, Owen, and I were all there to cheer on our little athlete.  He made us proud, finishing 3rd out of all of the 3rd graders.  Go, Clayton!

 I believe the phrase that you are looking for is "eye of the tiger."  
That boy had a look of fierce determination the entire time.  ;)

 He got to cross the finish line with one of his best buds.
 He walked straight from the finish line to the grass and laid down.  Ha!  The race depleted all of his energy stores.
It was a fun event for our little school!  Nothing like the thrill of healthy competition amongst classmates.  :)
