When you and your partner race what do you do with your kids?
Especially when the kid's fun run isn't until 2 hours later?
Well, we have run together a total of 3 times. Once the kids stayed at Grandma's the night before. Once we had a babysitter come over in the morning...And the other Grandma came to our house for another race.
This was when we had two kids. Since we've added Marcus...my wife hasn't raced...(and I have barely...1 5K and 2 half marathons)
....generally we don't race on the same day. Once in awhile you can find a race that babysits......whoppee....it is hard to find babysitters willing to get up at the crack of dawn on a Saturday morning. When the kids were smaller one pushed them in a jogger (usually husband, he thought he was so cool to beat his wife and have the kids yell "run faster mommy" as they come from behind me ).
