>Look What I Can Do!>Son's Mile PR
One day at a time
I'd give a lot to go back to 15 and run every day, for the joy of it. And I could never run like that.

My son, 15, won both his races tonight at a local meet. Last week, he PR'd in the mile at 4:52, and tonight he ran it in 4:49.

Now that was a bath...
My son, 15, won both his races tonight at a local meet. Last week, he PR'd in the mile at 4:52, and tonight he ran it in 4:49. He also won the two-mile race, but it wasn't a PR - he almost didn't run it, he was so tired from the mile. He's still a sophomore, so he should keep getting faster. We're thinking about sending him to an XC camp in North Carolina this summer, to humble him a little! He's kind of a big fish in a little pond in Maine, to say the least.
