Big race day -- finally got to run a race with the new running sensation -- Sydney! We signed up for local 2 mile fun run. I have done the 10k for this race in prior years. But today I was 1/2 coach, 1/2 runner with Sydney at my side. After doing the 1 mile race a few weeks back, I figured 2 would be a stretch and just more walking. But I learned that a 1 mile performance times 2 does not equal a 2-miler for 5 year old. Running math doesn't work. Much more walking! I did my share of motivating and got her to the finish line -- which she busted out a sprint and beat me to the finish. I will never live that down!
I finished 8th in my age group! Ok, out of 9 guys. All the real dudes my age were running the 10k "big boy" race but I had more fun doing this with Sydney than that race would ever be.
