My 12 year old son John wants to run the Lincoln 1/2 Marathon with me. He's eager and hasn't given up on the thought that is now about 40 days old. I haven't done any research or asked any experts, but are there any reasons why he couldn't? Training will officially start for the 1/2 in about a week and I know he'll breeze through the short runs. The weekend long runs....well....may be a bit of a reality check. Perhaps I should just leave it up to the running God's and let nature take it's course. What do you all think?
Here he is all decked out in this wrestling gear. Notice the muscle bulging (fist induced) on his right arm.
Later: The registration form stated the minimum age is 12 for participation. This is good! I checked it out yesterday when I officially registered.
Today's workout: 8-400, 5K pace, 60 min spin. Run on!
