Running with Alex
February seem like a long time ago. I've been running with Alex since early February. He is still struggling with his asthmatic breathing and his occasional need to go to the bathroom (usually when we're farthest from the house) but he has stuck with it, getting up early on Saturdays and Sundays. He is now up to 2.95 miles as of today. His pace is all over the map, today's being 12:30's but I've let him slack on that, concentrating in getting the distance down. By next weekend, Alex should be at 3.1 miles more or less which is a tremendous accomplishment for him. Before the chores of running get the best of him, I'll have to take him to a cool 5K event. Maybe we can do the Astros Run for the pennant at the end of May. That should excite him. I hope.
