Spencer ran the Go Far 5K in High Point this weekend along with IV, Jimmy, and several of our friends. It was his first marathon. I begged him to add a "T" to his T-shirt so it said GO FART-- but he wouldn't. Geez.
Anyway-- my little 10 year old, 73 pound goofball of a son actually came in 25th in a race of 1269 runners. He was the first kid in his school to finish--and he averaged a 7:21 mile and finished the 5k in 22:46. I know next to nothing about running, but from what I gather, he had a pretty impressive race.
IV also did EXTREMELY well and placed 214th with a finish time of 29:07 / 9:24 mile average.
My brother-- who has lost about 130 pounds in this past year ran for the first time without any training and managed to place 410th with a finish time of 32:47/ 10:35 mile average. We think it was his special day glow running shoes!
