A.M. Ran with the kids. 3 with Jenny. 2 with Joseph. 1 with Jacob. The rest myself. Carried weights for 2 miles. Did a pickup for 1.5 in 8:07, and then one more for 0.5 at the end. Total of 10. Benjamin did 3.
P.M. Benjamin, Joseph, Jacob, and Julia ran in the 3 K cross country race at the Kiwani's Park. Benjamin was still having problems from the cold, and his wrist was still hurting. So I told him to just go out with the leader, if he felt the pace was way too slow, just go ahead, but otherwise sit and wait for the kick. With how he was feeling, I was not sure he'd be able to do even that, and neither was Benjamin, but I told him to try his faith. If it was the Lord's will for him to win, he would, but he would not know unless he was willing to give the Lord a chance. He did as he was instructed. His competition was Garth Gardner - they dropped everybody else almost immediately. With 600 to go Benjamin was able to shift gears and win with 10:54. Garth got 11:04.
Joseph won the sub-Bantam division in 14:12. Jacob was third with 15:36. Julia was a bit hesitant to run hard because of a stomach ache, so I told her to just go and run with Jacob. She did, and finished in 15:37 in 4th place in the Bantam Girls - it was only 22 seconds slower than the winning time. I told her next time just to go hard and win the Bantam Girls. Also, to try to not get beat by Joseph.
