Sometimes, you're really, really happy just to finish the race (without doing any walking and under 45:00) before they take down the finish line.
Sometimes, you have to explain to Chuckles why you would want to run when you know you won't even win.
Chuckles had been riding his Big Wheel with me while I trained for the 5k. So on Sunday, he entered the Big Wheel 500...a half mile track race for plastic-tired children. He did his half mile in 3:50. He took 3rd in his age bracket. He's bringing his trophy for show-n-share tomorrow.
If he was training with me, how did he wind up so much faster?
