Alex ran a 5k this past Sunday. That's 3.1 miles for the metrically-challenged.
I'll say it again: 3.1 miles. He's five years old.
He did the whole course in 49 minutes. Other racers were so excited to see him out there, and hw drew cheers all along the course. We're pretty sure he was the youngest one in the race, although there was another five-year old that we didn't see.
Anne and I ran it with him, and Allison rode in the stroller along the way. He beat me at the finish line to earn a post-race treat for he and his sister!
