I wouldn’t call us “big” runners because we don’t break any land speed records. But, my wife and I do like to run and regularly take part in a lot of local races. 5k, 10k, 5 Milers, a half marathon or two and my wife’s done a couple of marathons. We think running is a great thing and we’re trying to pass that on to our children.
Last weekend Maxim, who’s two years old, ran in his first race. The Quad Cities Micro Marathon 1/4 miler. He was a little off his game since they scheduled the race during nap time (1:30 in the afternoon) but he still did a great job. I think he’ll be doing the 1 mile race by next year.
