When your 10-month-old son is there to cheer you on, anything is possible. You can ask Chip Gaines! He recently completed a marathon while pushing his youngest son, Crew, in a stroller.

Best support system

The Fixer Upper star completed his first marathon at the inaugural Silo District Marathon, Half Marathon, in Texas. With his cute son, who was there to support his daddy the entire time, Chip was able to make a great accomplishment.

The performance marked a massive fundraising effort thanks to the collaboration with cancer survivor and professional runner Gabriele Grunewald. The race, which started as a way to encourage those who have always wanted to run a marathon, raised $250,000 for the Brave Like Gabe Foundation, which supports rare cancer research.

Although he just finished this year’s race, the 43-year-old is already counting down to the next year’s marathon.

Baby Crew cheers the crowd

Crew couldn’t have looked cuter as he took part in the race. Chip posted an adorable picture of himself and Crew from the marathon on his Instagram page.

Crew was spotted waving to everyone who was there to cheer them on while running. Chip and Crew were not the only ones to participate in the race — his daughter Ella also took part.

His wife Joanna, however, didn’t participate, but she was present to cheer on her family. The proud mother posted pictures on her Instagram page with the caption:

Watching the grit, the fight, and the spirit of these runners left me speechless. So many of you would tell me who you were running in honor of and I was literally teary eyed the entire time.

I was also so proud of @chipgaines and Ella (and baby Crew) for running the half marathon today and killing it.

Family time

Before the marathon, Joanna had posted a photo of the family harvesting carrots on their 40-acre farm. Baby Crew was not left out as he was spotted picking up a carrot.

The family had spent the Easter holiday on their farm in Waco, Texas. The Gaines actually live on a farm, where they have different animals and an expansive garden.

Isn’t baby Crew just the cutest? Before you know it, he will be big old enough to run the race all by himself. We hope the family has more successful ventures.
