Non ducor, duco.
The kids run up to two miles in indoor track, and 3200 meters in outdoor track. 5k is only in XC. For Logan, the longer the distance the better!

In HS, by youngest would run the 800, 1600, 3200 and 5K all in a single meet, while the other (a year older) would run the 1600, 3200 and 5K. I always expressed my concern over that, especially for meets where they didn't need the scoring.
I've got a fever...
That's what I thought. In CT, they have the 5k on the outdoor track and at some of the bigger indoor track meets.
On your deathbed, you won't wish that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will wish that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Thats awesome! I can relate on several levels....I ran track in HS and never put in the miles. Always ended up with shin splints at the end of each season. My track coach was the football coach and in hindsight, I don't think he knew much about distance running. So that is great that your son seems to have a good coach. On another level, my son plays soccer and basketball and it can be quite nerve racking to watch sometimes. You always want your kids to do well and be happy, it is nice when it all works out.
I grew up in CT doing the 3000 meter and 1500 meter. They didn't do the 5K in high school back in my day and while they have changed to 1600 and 3200, I am almost positve they have not added a 5K.
