Ah, a boy's first pair of running shoes...

Truly, a moment to cherish forever.

You see, the oldest R child, that would be Payton, is heading off to middle school. And, after much cajoling, and...well, let's face it, bribing, he decided to join the middle school cross country team. And so, it was to pass that he needed to get his first pair of running shoes.

Real running shoes.


He picked out a pair of Brooks Adrenaline's - nice choice. And he's wearing a size 11.

A size 11...

Did I mention he's eleven years old?

Much like his Father, he is not going to have a marathon runner's build, I'm afraid.

Let's race!
