Miles again ran cross country this year.  It was the last year where he will race the 1km, and he did great!  His enthusiasm, endurance and pure love of running made it a joy to watch him participate and develop in the sport.  As a bonus, I was able to coach this season and see it all up close.  His first meet was about getting used to it, “that was hard” he determined after losing his breath.  On the morning of the second meet, he came into my bed early.  “How do I win the race today?” he asked.  We talked about pace, pain and doing your best.  He rocked it, finishing in the top 20% and getting a massive PR.  He was definitely happy with his effort!
