Over the last 18 months, it’s been awesome to see Cairo, my 16 year old son embrace the sport of running. It has been a huge way to bond with him. He’s learned a lot about commitment and has seen the success of hard work.
We’ve shared the challenges of pushing ourselves while running and pushing ourselves to get up at O-Dark-Thirty in the morning.
We finished the early races together until he found his speed!
Cairo starts placing in some races. That definitely put a smile on his face!
Cairo runs his first Half Marathon and beats me! :)
Cairo and I weathered the storm at the 2011 Dallas White Rock Marathon. He did very well running the Half Marathon.
In the fall of 2011, Cairo took a break from distance training to focus on speed, a.k.a. High School Cross Country. It was cool to be a spectator and to cheer him on. He made me a proud papa with his performances!
I’m so glad to be able to share these experiences with Cairo. I has been so rewarding!
