Last Saturday, Jacob and Isaac participated in a local 1-mile children's race. Jacob ran it last year, but this was Isaac's first time. Both were very excited.
Front and center, ready to go. (Jacob and his friend Ashlynn had a strategy this year - start in front, stay in front.)
Jacob "trained" for a couple weeks prior to the race. Although personally I think he trains all year long - sometimes I wonder if he knows any other way of getting around besides running. Especially in the house.
We estimate he ran it in about 7 1/2 minutes. He definitely improved on last year's time. Way to go, Jacob!
Isaac ran a good race too. I'm proud of him for doing something outside of his comfort zone.
I asked the boys after the race if they had a good time. Jacob shouted in the affirmative. Isaac said "No, it was too tiring" with a roll of his eyes.
