My 8yr old wanted some running shoes so we gave them a spin: 8:14 and 6:25 pace for that final 0.17miles.
I beat him, but only coz I threw in a hill at about 3/4mile to slow his little legs down then changed the finish line just as he was slowing to victory. By golly, he's swift! Really really struggled to hold his pace on final 1/3mile.
He loves his new shoes, great to see that spark of new running shoe excitement...
...was going to have a rest day after yesterday's half marathon, but how could I resist his eager demands to go for a run?
