First Race of the Season (not for me, though)

Well, the boy's season started before mine at the Fetzer 20k and 2 mile race in Rochester, MN. Jace is 8, so he did the 2 mile. He had a great race with a 7:37 pace! He finished 1st in his age group of '9 and under' and finished 12th overall of 75. We, mainly his mom, were worried about him going from relatively no running (except in gym class/recess) to 2 miles. I encouraged him to walk, stop, have fun, do whatever, start out easy, just have fun, etc. Well, he had fun by going hard. Sometimes I don't know about that kid...

Results of the races:

You have a Steve Prefontaine in the making! Get over to Park Rapids (Lakes to Pines) on 5/16 and enter him in the kids tri there. My son is doing it again this year.
