“Fixer Upper” star Chip Gaines recently announced that he would be running his first marathon. On May 6th, the reality television star will put on his running shoes for the “Silo District Marathon” in Waco, Texas.
As Gaines has been preparing for his first 26-mile race, his family has been very supportive—especially, his children.
On social media, Gaines shared a photo of the kind gesture his kids did for their dad one day. The Gaines children—Drake, Ella, Duke, and Emmie Kay—left adorable notes for their father before his morning run.
Next to the notes, there was a variety of fruit, nut butter, a vitamin C packet, and a shaker bottle.
The notes contained encouraging messages like “Go get ‘em on your seven-mile run!” and “We love you, dad...you got this!”
Gaines stated, “My maiden run at the [Silo District Marathon] has become a family affair. 7.2 mile long run in the books! I got teary eyed this am when I saw this. But at mile 5 it was the only thing I could think of…”
Chip Gaines’ marathon prep comes around the same time that the Gaines family shared other exciting news—Joanna’s pregnancy. The couple is expecting their fifth child sometime this year.
