If your baby had taken his or her first steps over the weekend, and you were a blogger, would have written about it? I thought so… My son took his first steps many years ago, but he did something huge on Saturday, and I didn’t tell you about it. Major failure on my part!
On Saturday morning Joseph ran 20 miles! Yep, that’s right, he ran his first 20-miler! I didn’t realize that he was planning on going that far when I met him on the trail as I was coming back from my run, or I would have taken a photo.
Joseph’s first race was a neighborhood obstacle course! In high school he ran cross country, and since then has run for fitness. This spring he’s started adding on the miles…
Now he’s thinking marathons and someday maybe ultras…. I’m giddy with excitement! 🙂
- What new thing has your child done lately?
- Were your parents as excited as Bill and I are when you ran your first long run?
- What distance was your longest run ever? ~ I ran the JFK 50-Miler once, only once…
