Fun 5K with the boys this morning. We warmed up a little before the race, then started out together. By the end of the first mile Andy was pulling ahead and Thomas was starting to struggle. I had Andy go ahead. He did really well after having been over a 9 minute pace for the first mile ended with a 8:30ish average. I think he could have done even better with a good push.
Thomas was struggling and becoming angry so I stayed far enough ahead so he couldn't complain to but close enough so he could still see me. I'd look back, see him take a walk break, but not too long before he was running again.
They've been interested in running more so I've been taking them for a few short runs during the week. With some consistency and improvement they might start enjoying it more.
We did this race last year (which had surprised me then that they wanted to run it), hopefully will run it next year as well. It's a nice run around the college campus.
