The Lorax and I just went for a warm up for his race tomorrow. He is going to be running the 2.5k child run at Forårs-Klassikeren in Valby. After his race, I will run either the 10 or 15k race with him in the baby jogger. The distance I choose will largely depend on his mood. Natali has plans with a friend and SR will be working, so I thought this would be a good way to have fun with him and do some speedwork. I promise at least a few photos.
But can a just-barely 2 year old honestly run a 2.5k? I doubt it. Or maybe some could. Okay, The Lorax loves to run, but he is just so small and easily distracted. On our one tour around the track today, he must have stopped and said "hva' det?" 15 times about little rocks. I mean 6 minutes for one tour around the track, probably means an over the time limit for him. But maybe he'll sense the competition and get his act together.
Baby Jogger Racing
So the World Record in running a marathon with a baby jogger is held by Zac Freudenburg, who ran in 2:32:10 this past December, barely outrunning the previous world record holder, Mike Wardian, who tried to race Freudenberg for the prestigious title, but ended up a couple minutes behind. But what we all really care about is the FEMALE record in this event... does anyone know?
This huge race is of course going on in California today and I had to laugh when I read the live update: "Tony Krupicka just arrived at the start with Jen Shelton." What is this, the Oscars? I was hoping for an update on who Helen Lavin arrived with, but no such luck. Live updates here:http://www.ultralive.net/cil.php

"Children are fascinated by the ordinary and can spend timeless moments watching sunlight play with dust. Their restlessness they learn from you. It is you who are thinking of there when you are here. It is you who thinks of then instead of now. Stop. Let your children become the teachers and you the student" - William Martin
