At last night's cross country practice, the coach shared everyone's times from the meet on Sunday and then tabulated what kind of improvement the kids have seen from last year.
Fiver finished his race in five minutes and four seconds. I don't think I can get anything done in five minutes and four seconds.
As impressed as we were with his time, we were not expecting what came next. Fiver's time on Sunday is ONE AND A HALF MINUTES FASTER THAN HIS FASTEST TIME last year.
We were kind of blown away by that. We knew he had gotten stronger, but it's pretty amazing to see it laid out in number form.
Time may not heal everything, but it sure does fix an awful lot.
