Running for Grandpa

On Fathers Day my brother and my two nephews did a 5k in Edmonton for Prostate Cancer with my dad. For those of you who don't know, my dad has early stage prostate cancer and is very treatable. Add that to the fact he loves to run it made sense for him to participate. My brother and the boys decided to join him. Well they didn't exactly all run together, my dad was off on his own and Austin and Braeden were at a slower pace with my brother. Although Austin did really well and ran most of it much to every ones surprise. Dave hung back with Braeden and even had to carry him on his shoulders for some of it. For a 5 year old he did a great job. Craig MacTavish, former NHL player and current head coach of the Edmonton Oilers was the chairman of the run. Austin of course recognized him right away and him and Braeden got their picture taken with MacT. I have to admit, I'm a little jealous:)

You gotta watch those kids around MacT, I hear he's not a very good driver!
