Ezra & I decided to run a charity 5k for a pregnancy resource center.  Ezra has been running all year at school, 180 miles since October, he can run 2 miles in 20 minutes during recess so we knew he could do 2 miles but not sure how he would do with 3.1.  He wanted to run it at his pace, which happens to be way faster than mine (I was doing sprint interval training getting ready for softball).  We had a friend lined up to run with him but in the end there was a trail that Kelly, Marian & Tobin were able to follow along on their bikes.  He took off at the start and never slowed down . . . and finished it in 23 minutes flat!  Wow, we couldn’t believe it.  I finished 10 minutes later and asked him if he was tired at all?  His response “In the end, it felt like my legs were running for me”–again, wow, runner’s high and he’s only 8!

He ended up finishing 4th overall, we was pretty excited:)

This 14 year old girl and Ezra were passing each other back and forth, we think that was all he needed to keep going;)
