Run Streaks

I took Delaney out yesterday for his birthday. I'd spent all day at Copper, grabbed new shoes on the way home, and then went to get him after his Knowledge Bowl practice. Tia was with Kendall at her practice, so Delaney and I got some lunch.

As we were chatting, I mentioned that day 1531 was two years ago. He asked me if I missed it, and I said I did. I'd tried to get going a few times, though surgery certainly slowed things. However I didn't make enough of an effort, though since I'm on day 103 of mixed exercise, I'm getting something done.

We chatted and he thought about trying it himself. Something short, simple, just a mile to a mile and a half, and just to keep strong. We looked at his pace, and his final race was a 6:46 pace. To get below 20 minutes, he'd need to get down near 6:20, and could he do it. I think he can and we'll see.

I asked him what he thought he'd do in just a mile. He said around 5 minutes.

Wow. I couldn't imagine going that fast. One of these days I'm going to see if I can time him and see.
