Had to. Me? Or the dog? Or maybe, both?

 

Windermere Run Among the lakes 5k 2018.

Very first 5k ever was this one, in 2002.

The past few years, including yesterday’s 2018 event, we’ve walked it as a Family.

Creating traditions (around milestones, anniversaries, and transformation) is a key element i learned from Walt Disney World operations.

The man in the yellow shorts

Cross Country meet at West Orange HS
Yesterday was his first attempt to run 3.1 miles without stopping.

 

The man in the yellow shorts (about five or six runners from the right) was last. The man in lime shorts was 12th. They are teammates.

If there was a gold medal for heart and perseverance, both would need one.

In fact, most of the runners are dedicated beyond logic.

It’s cool to witness.

Defining moments may or may not have an expiration date

Windermere Prep 2016 football game
Remember how hot yesterday afternoon’s football game was? You’ll be soaked in sweat by 8:30am today.

 

Defining moments may or may not have an expiration date. With that in mind, enjoy this morning’s first ever 5k run.

Two firsts:

  1. Running three miles.
  2. First competitive run.

Stay healthy, have fun.

Turnaround workouts

Inspiring tagline
i exist to teach personal responsibility to a future adult.

 

Turnaround workouts. Tough workout last night (6:00-745pm) and easy workout at 6am this morning. His first 5k Cross Country meet tomorrow morning, a Saturday. He’s never run three miles without stopping.

Our plan has always been to run three miles without stopping by the end of August. Tomorrow is August 20. We still have 11 days if tomorrow proves too much.
