Brookline Breeze -- our time: 38-minutes

Grant, 8, and I ran the Brookline Breeze together -- painfully mostly. He wants to go too fast and then too slow. Pace is an important concept to learn.

He did fly at the finish. I had a hard time keeping up with him.

This was Grant's first 5K.

A handful of kid runners were very impressive.

Next year Grant wants to do the 1-mile fun run.

But, we need to do a better job with 'self-talk' and 'programming.' There are certain words that I don't want to hear -- ever. Not as a coach. Not as a parent. Not on the stage of sports -- such as -- 'i can't.' My teams had this drilled into them, and it works: ONLY positive talk.

Fun event. Beautiful day. And, we got a door prize -- and urban hike from Adventure Outdoors.

Next up, 2 pm birthday party for a classmate. Plus, the Western Pa Linux User Group annual picnic. ( Then 7 pm to North Hills Library for storytelling event.
