During the time that we were planning National Superhero Day happened. Because of this a whole flood of heart moms posted pictures of their Heart Heroes on the IHH page on FaceBook. We were inspired and decided we would use these pictures and make posters to put up at the race. Now that was something I could do from the comfort of my own home and didn't have to go anywhere!
We ended up with 122 pictures of our sweet Heart Heroes. Once they were all printed they looked amazing and so cute. Our plan was to put them on skewers and put them along the route of the race.
We were so worried all that work was for nothing and they were just going to be ruined before the race even started. But one of our committee members had the amazing idea of slipping plastic bags over them to protect them from the water. It worked perfectly!

My brother Clark and his cute wifie Megan came with their kids Andrew and Isabel as well. They were so cute pushing them in strollers as they ran in the rain.
It was a pretty soggy day, but not too bad. At the very end of the race it started to downpour and we all got pretty soaked. At least it wasn't unbearably hot!
In the end I think it turned out perfectly. Many of the racers said that being able to see the posters of all our sweet kids as they ran was their favorite part of the race. That made me feel so great and was so happy that I was able to get those done and do my part.
