At the start, feeling strong and knowing to take it slow and steady.
Followed my own rule from coaching: "Run all the way through the finish!"
What was great about the boys (David, Zane and Cody) coming is that there was a 1 mile kids fun run. We signed Zane up for it and he got the cool t-shirt. I did not think that he would be able to run the whole race and that he would take out way fast like I see so many kids do in these things. But he actually listened! He too took it slow and steady!
