It’s all kid stuff

If you want to find serious people with splits on their arms grinding along on a mission, run a half marathon in San Antonio.

If you want to find joy, run a 5k with a hundred kids.

Splits? What’s a split. Pace? Not happening. They’re running the ultimate fartleks: chasing after a friend, a seagull, a crabby old man.

Sometimes you forget that running is supposed to be about having fun.

It just takes an 8-year-old crossing a finish line to make you remember.

Thanks, guys. Good race.

    And they run without Garmin or Gu, most likely wearing the same pair of shoes they wear to school every day. I love watching kids race!
