*accessing crazy psychic powers* I'm going to predict 18:45 for his 5k this year.
If he's running during summer he's probably doing better than a lot of his teammates-to-be. Or at least he'd be doing better than my teammates
Just keep him away from dyestat/letrun and he'll be safe (half-joking)
I would have to totally agree that the 'little-uns' can definately 'bring it on'. My son is 8 (9 in 2 months) and he LOVES to run. He actually comes to military PT sessions with me and can outrun many of the Airmen that are active duty. He ran the Lompoc Relay for Life and RAN for the entire hour, he clocked in right around 5 miles total. If you count the hour that he was on the track prior to his official hour, he got in well over 7 miles that night. To me that's pretty impressive. He and I met up with DimMak and his son (same age) for a local 5K at which both boys did quite well. Of course both DimMak and I ran with our boys, so our times were their times. We all came in around 32-33 or so. For one that young, I'm impressed, and did I mention HE LOVES IT. He is actually running in the mornings now with a friend of his. I swear, the boy runs more than I do and I'm active duty. But at 34 I tend to hurt more than he does
