Run dad, keep up

This is a scene that played itself off over and over at Saturday’s Ironkids event.  Fathers doing the run leg along with their kids (often with mothers a few steps behind).  But if it only was as easy as it sounds.  Most of us huffed and puffed along carrying bags and cameras, taking photos, encouraging the kids to keep going and sidestepping other parents and the general public along the way.  Not quite as easy (or dignified) as it sounds.  Specially when you’re trying not to look like you’re gasping for air or wiping the sweat from your eyes the whole way.
