Families On! Challenge & other local family races


Now that the kids are back in school, I'm missing the summertime when we got to spend most of our days together. Luckily for us, Families On! Challenge hosted a race last  weekend that allowed us to relive some of those summer adventures.

The race theme was "Everything You Can't Do at Home" and included obstacles like a food fight, a paint war, and a giant bubble bath. The kids couldn't wait to get started and get messy! 

What made the event even more fun for the kids was being able to race with some of their friends. We knew in advance that some of our family friends were going to attend, and then we were pleasantly surprised when we saw more friends there too. Lyla especially couldn't stop smiling! 


We ended the race covered in paint, food, and bubbles, and with medals around our necks. Most importantly though were the smiles each of my kids had on their faces when they crossed the finish line.

I am so blessed to be able to share moments like these with my children, and I love that we continue to be active as a family. The little ones are already asking about the next race we can do as a family, so below you will find a calendar of family friendly races coming up in Athens over the next few months!
