While I may not have been running, Logan was and he too won a trophy! At the end of his 4 race series (in the age-group Pre-K, 50 yard dashers) he finished 2nd. I don’t think he totally ever understood exactly WHY he won a trophy, as seen by this picture.
But we were excited for him. And here he is excited with his series medal with his best girl, Jade.
I have figured out the strategy for these races, in case you’re wondering. First, if you’re 4 years old, you have a very clear advantage over the rest of the kids who are usually just 3. Also, if you can get started running right after the announcer says, “GO!” (as opposed to several seconds later) AND run in a straight line (extremely hard for these kids to do) then you will do well.
I have also started running again and man, it’s so unfair how quickly fitness goes. But at least our weather is nice.
