Liam has been running cross country this year and he loves it. Turns out, he’s also running with a great group of boys. There is one boy on the team who does a lot of walk/running and always comes in long after everyone else. He remains determined and focused.
At one meet, the boys had come in and were getting their water. I went over to them and asked, “Who has a little extra energy to run with your teammate?” thinking that’s what they’d do if we were on youtube. Without missing a beat, they all took off to find this boy on the course and ran with him until he finished.
Today I’m thankful that my first born is such a great kid and has a nice group of friends.
