RED RIBBON RUN! SAY "NO" TO DRUGS!!
My boys, Jett(9) and Jake(6) ran in their first official races this weekend. Now a little background on this:
Jett: Loves to play sports but gets tired easily and will use every excuse in the book when he doesn't feel like running anymore........"my ankle hurts", "I have a pain in my side", "I ate too much", "I'm tired".....and the list goes on and on......so hubby and I were a bit worried that he would go out too fast and fizzle!! My bet in the high 9's and hubby said over 10 minutes .....he was running 1 mile.
Jake: Goes 100 miles an hour from the minute he wakes till the minute he falls asleep. There is no slow down button, only on and off. With him, we knew he would run the entire 1/2 mile as fast as he could and we were both thinking he'd come in in the 4-5 minute range ........UNTIL......DUH,DUH,DUH ( dramatic event music)......He falls out of the stadium seat waiting for his turn to run ( did I menetion that he NEVER sits still) and scrapes his arm pretty good.......Sweet lady next to us whips out a first aid kit with neosporin and bandaids!! We fix it up, but he is still whining and fussing when it is time for him to go line up so we are SURE he will not try and will whine and walk the entire 1/2 mile.
