THIS BOY CAN HURDLE!

Who would've THUNK!You see...we grow 'em BIG in my family.
Big and stalky.
Look at their dad for crying out loud.
We're not exactly built for speed.
And I'm okay with that.
Kaleb begs to differ.
And I'm okay with that too.
He's not a big fan of the long distance runs.
(who can blame him?)
So he sticks with the sprints.
This year, he's found his LOVE.
The 100 meter hurdles.
The first time I saw him run...
I held my breath.
He's very competitive.
(I have NO idea where he gets that from.)
He doesn't like to lose.
I have to remind him that he's only a 6th grader.
He ran hard,
and placed first.
He's won every race since.
It's no easy task I tell you...

Just look at his face. :)

Way to go Kaleb! I love track, ours ended on Wednesday! Mine doesn't love the distance either!

Yeah! I had no idea he ran that and was so successful! I've always loved hurdles myself but never ran track.

I'm just loving the shot of his tongue hanging out. I'm thinking he's been spending WAY too much time with the pugs!

YAY Kaleb!

You go Bubby!! I used to love to run the hurdles too. Can you believe that with my bad knees. I liked shot put and discus too. Keep up the great work. So sorry I'm missing the campout.
