On your mark... Get set
The 2 specs at the top of the picture are Jake and Hank. I had no expectation of Ella and Shane being able to do it, but I asked Jake to jog slowly with Hank to help him pace himself. I guess 'slowly' is a relative term.
The big boys waited for me and the littles at the mile mark, and then Jake and I switched roles. He carried Shane, and I jogged with the other two.
Had he run a steadier, slower pace originally, Hank could have rocked the mile with no trouble. I think Ella could do it, too, but she doesn't like to get sweaty. Princesses are allowed to glow, but apparently sweating is frowned upon.
We got to the end and then walked back to Jake and Shane so we could all cross the finish line together.
