The mid-life crisis thing to do is run a marathon or triathalon or something. I will never be able to do either, so I'll have to come up with something else, something less exciting, something more fattening! And in the mean-time I'll live vicariously through my kid.
So back to my question. How fast can you run a mile? Is 7:48 a good time for the mile? Not a shabby time at all in my book. What if you were 4 feet tall and 7 years old?
Andrew was so excited to run the mile this week. They run it twice a year in school for the Presidential Physical Fitness test. His goal for himself was the mid-7's, and while I thought it was an overly lofty goal for a 7 year old, he came pretty close. Imagine what a little training would do for the kid? So I figure I may have a year or two left until he leaves me in the dust.
And for my midlife crisis I'll be eating bon-bons while I cheer him on instead.
