Evan-the all around sports guy

The other day, Gordon was hitting a low during the day, so he decided to go for a run. He planned on leaving our driveway, going to Lindsay Rd to Van Buren; Van Buren to Hampton; Hampton back to Trapline and to our driveway. That is a total of 3.5 miles.
Evan heard Gordon tell me this and decided he wanted to go too. I was a little skeptical about that. That is a long way for those little legs, but he was determined to go. Gordon told him ok, pretty sure that he would have to call me to come get them half way through it all. They took off and I watched them from the window and said a little prayer to keep those little legs going! They ran all the way to Hampton; walked Hampton to Trapline; then ran the rest of the way home.
I couldn't believe it! Evan ran a total of 2.75 miles and walked .75 miles in the wind and cold and all in 35 minutes!
I have an awesome kid who is very athletic! I had my doubts, but he did it. I thought for sure that would be the end of that, but last night he asked Gordon if they could run again.
Way to go, Evan! Keep up the great physical fitness!!
