Whilst I was waiting to run last Saturday my son was able to do his second Langdale fun run. Luckily it had stopped raining by the time he had to line up in this picturesque setting:
He was all fired up and ready to go as he is really keen on running and eager to do well:
He had learned from his debut not to go off too fast though the course was a bit shorter this time so when he had his official photo taken he was still going strong:
As he came towards the final leg he managed a final burst of speed to finish in 9th place:
He is still very much a novice and being only in infants school he is not ready for serious training but he is already hooked on running in our glorious countryside. Next stop the Grasmere Gallop which is a whopping 5.7 km so he needs a little bit of stamina building with me..
