Will Joins Track Team

Lucy started running track a couple years ago with the local CYO and loved it so we decided to throw Will into the mix this year as well.

Based on the first few practices...they both really seem too hate it:

In a bit of a head-scratcher, Will could be seen doing push-ups on the track in the middle of practice...taking a page from Sun Tzu's Art of War a la:

"The whole secret lies in confusing the enemy, so that he cannot fathom our real intent."

Now...the goals you set for 5 year-olds in organized sports are...measured. For example, I coach Will's t-ball baseball team and I will consider it a huge win if some of the kids walk away understanding where first base is and that you run to it after hitting the ball. That's a W in my book. Likewise, in track, if the kids run forwards instead of backwards when the starter fires of the shot, that's a win.

It was with great pride, therefore, that we watched Will take home a gold in his first dash (note he is almost loses at the end because he is smiling and laughing through the whole affair...because he is Will.)

We look forward to many strange and wonderful moments on the track from Will in 2019 and beyond.
