Ran his first marathon. This was about a month ago, but I forgot to post then. It was a mile long and he had so much fun. Just thought I'd share. I'm so proud.

That is too cool! You must be so proud. Did you run the marathon together?

No, he did it by himself. I have an injured knee so running isn't an option for me until I'm stronger and healed. Besides, I'm been so focused on my weight loss and exercise, I wanted it to be all about him.
I am so proud of him. When he asked if he could sign up, I almost cried.

That's so great!!! You should be proud! :D

My daughter is 10 and training for a 5k with me. Even before that she would go run every morning before school. She's got like the running gene or something, she loves it.

A marathon is 26.2 miles... If he ran a mile he ran his first road race...

It was called Kidz Marathon, so I put marathon in the op. I don't even understand the point of this "corection". It was snarky and rude.

I was not trying to be snarky OR rude... BUT if you do want to see snarky/rude go to a real marathoner and tell him/her this story lol.. It a hard thing for non runners/marathoners to understand.... It's just kind of offensive..
