Bens 1st Run // Hippie Dash //




Ben got to run in his 1st real run event this morning, The Hippie Dash in Gulfport. He is signed up for track in the fall so he is starting to prepare for that by doing some runs around town. I decided to register him for the 1 mile run instead of the 5k just because he hasnt had the time to get ready for a full 3 mile run. 
He did really good, better than he or I expected, so we are very proud of him. He finished 1st in the 1 mile at 8 minutes. He wants to run a little more everyday just to get his time down so I am glad he is going to put the work into this. 
What is everyone else up to this weekend?

  1. 1 mile in 8 minutes isn't bad and I'm sure after doing a bit more running he'll definitely bring it down. I remember when I was in the army I had to do 2 miles in 16 minutes. :)
