Heckuva 3 days for me (Read 199 times)

    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.  Cool

        Very cool.

        Runners run.

        No more marathons

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