Twizzler is a natural runner. We noticed his natural speed and love for running a few years ago, but unlike team sports like soccer and football, track seems to be completely absent from the normal sports offerings for young kids.
Now that he’s finished with elementary school, he’ll be able to join the track team at the middle school in just a few months, and he’s raring to go.
This weekend, Twizzler and CandyMan ran a 5K together – it was Twizzler’s first race (other than the “Fun Run” at school each year) and he knocked it out of the park.
His final time was 28 minutes 11 seconds, but he would have been faster if he hadn’t been waiting up for his old man.
The race hardly fazed him, energy-wise, but he was definitely a happy and proud boy at the end.
When in the world did my kid turn into a little teenager?
