My son the sprinter (?)

June 16, 2011

Phil notched his first-ever footrace victories last night at the Club Northwest All Comers track meet, sweeping the 50- and 100-meter dashes in the 4-year-old division. Here he is with his ribbons and a celebratory post-meet Slurpee.

It remains to be seen whether Phil will have more than a passing interest in running; he only came to the meet because he thought his friend Theo would be there. But perhaps we’ll eventually recall this evening at Shoreline Stadium and say, “Yes, sir — that’s where it all began.”
