a lesson in running

sam is doing his first race in february. it's a marathon. he has between now and the race day to log 25.2 miles. then on race day, he gets to run the last mile with all the other kids who have put in some hard work as well. ron tried to show him the difference between running and jogging, explaining you can't start too fast or you will wear yourself out.
and they're off! the jogged 1/2 mile. luke ran the whole way. sam said he was tired just a few minutes in and walked home by himself. he doesn't want to have anything to do with running now. that's not what ron wanted.
tomorrow is his birthday and he's been trying to guess what we got him. tonight before bed he said he just didn't want it to have anything to do with running.
