Today at school Alex's class had a runathon to raise some money. Anne showed up to pick Alex up and he was soaked from head to toe with sweat. He ran 1.5 miles in 15 minutes.
I am amazed. His short legs running at a 10-minute per mile pace is incredible! Apparently he was all confidence, too. He told the teachers that he knew how to pin his number on because he has already done a couple races. He also talked about his "next race", a 5k he wants to run in a few weeks.
This kid is already faster than I was in junior high school. I ran a mile in 11 minutes when I was 10.
