>Look What I Can Do!>Heckuva 3 days for me
If you can't brag to a bunch of anonymous runners on the internet, to whom can you brag?
Wednesday: 6th grade son wins his first ever 800m track race at a local middle school (6th grade only) triangular.
Thursday: 14-year-old son wins both the 1600m and the 800m in convincing fashion, setting new mile PR, in middle school dual.
Friday: Sophomore son gets 2-mile PR and his first ever high school varsity medal (3rd place) in 7-school meet in one of the most competitive efforts I've ever seen from him, hanging tough with the leaders through 7-1/2 laps and only losing out in the knife-fight final 200m.
It's like being in dad-runner heaven.
We are fragile creatures on collision with our judgment day.

I ran half my last race on my left foot! "Frankly autocorrect, I'm getting a bit tired of your shirt"

Nothing better than watching the kids do well. Congrads to a proud dad.
