My friend organized a track night for kids this past Monday night. She is planning on doing it every other Monday night this summer. We had a pretty good turn-out for a first time event. There were about 6 families and 16 children or so who competed in the various races. (50, 100, 200, 400 and 800 yard dash)
My poor boy also suffered his first running injury. He was sprinting at top speed and a little 3 year old accidentally ran into his lane and bumped him, knocking my son face first on the track. Rocky cried at first but John convinced him to get up and to finish. He did and was fine but he gets upset if he sees the injury or if someone asks him about it. It is actually healing pretty well. This picture was taken 3 days after the fall. The important thing was that he kept going!
