Run, Jared, Run!

Jared has been running a lot lately. As if he's not busy enough doing work and school full time, he also wakes up early to run and just finished two 5Ks. Not only did he finish them, he won 3rd place for his age group, both times! Yay Jared! You're awesome. Look at him in his running glory! lol!

Can you spot him?

Here he is with his little mini-self pre-race.

Here is Noah, thinking HE won the race.

Ooh, look at that medal!

Daddy and Noah with a little pre-race fuel (Cheerios!) Notice Jared's shoes. Vibram Five Fingers. You heard of them? They are one of the closest (certainly the most popular) shoes to running barefoot that are out right now. Jared was the only person in the race wearing them.
He loves them.
If you are wondering why you would want to run barefoot, read "Born to Run" by Christopher Mcdougall. Or google it. It's controversial.
Go Jared! You're awesome!

I just found your blog. I hope you're ok with officially being stocked by the Ririe's. Congrats Jared. We need to get together soon!

way to go Jared. I just read up about barefoot running - crazy how virulent the opposing sides are...

Good luck tomorrow!
