Old guys and young guys

This week I was able to go out running with my (younger by 3 yrs) brother and his son (a fresh runner of 12). Robert had figured out a 7 mile circuit around Cambuslang and off we went. It was fun to have someone to run with, fun to share it with family for a change. It was also a lot of fun to watch the incessant and driven running of the young guy.

He usually trains weeknights with his cross country team (Cambuslang Harriers) but this particular night he ran further than he had done before with his dad and uncle. He had been concerned that he wouldn’t be able to do 7 miles… 3 had been his max to date. I knew he could do it, and now he does too. It will give him more confidence in his abilities.
