There is a rock quarry in downtown Columbia that is 375 feet deep. This year they decided to have a race to the bottom of the quarry and back. Only 200 runners could enter the race for safety reasons. Adam loves any challenge so he signed up.
Outside the quarry was a festival. There were lots of bulldozers and other big machinery on hand for people to oooo and ahhhh over. The girls were not impressed.
Caroline was very nervous about being this close.
But there were also bouncy houses - so Caroline perked up!
Adam - getting ready to race. Just noticed that some other people in the pic are impressed with his muscles too - lol!
And they were off. And we couldn't watch because you see - they had run down into the quarry where no spectators could go. So we waited and ate breakfast.
And before we knew it - he was back! 3.72 miles later.
Tim Dominick is a photographer for The State. He WAS able to go into the quarry and take pictures. He had these pictures of Adam.
After the race, we chilled at the festival. More bounce house and some just looking at the booths.
Lucy took a snooze.
And so did Caroline.
They then announced the awards and Adam got first place in his age group! Woohoo!
Proud of Daddy!
