Sam’s First Race

We are so, so proud of Sam for completing his first race!  Dave and I both started running last year, and Sam thought it sounded like fun to run in races and win medals. We found out about a 1/2 mile kids’ dash happening near us, so we signed him up and began practicing. Sam and I have been going out for 1/2 mile practice runs after dinner every night. It hasn’t been easy for him. Our earliest runs included a lot of walking breaks and took 11-12 minutes to complete. He kept working at it, though, and got his half-mile time down to 7 minutes. We have no idea how long he took to run the race today, but it doesn’t matter at all.  He was strong and confident and had a great time running!
