jog-a-thon 2016

i was specifically asked to NOT jog along side either boy this year, unless requested (true and luca's mandate).  maybe it might have broke my heart just a little bit...but i get it.  i know where i'm no longer needed.
this was true's final jog-a-thon...and he did his best ever.  even after two shoelace tie stops!  45 laps is darn close to the school record of 50- and i do have to throw in that the time period was shortened from 20 mins to 18 mins...at the rate of 2.5 laps a minute, he'd be in line with a school record!
and luca...oh luca.  he did not look like he had any fun at all, but that kid set a pace and never let up.  he tied two other boys for lap leaders in the 2nd grade.  luca really knows how to suffer-  he just pushes through and never gives up.

is he 10 or 16?!  he looks so mature

perfect form....true is an amazing runner

this was the happiest i have ever seen true after finishing


he always stuck to running inside, knowing it would be an advantage

the kids made me take this. neither luca nor myself could figure out why

luca, elliot, lucca- 2nd grade lap leaders!
