    Thats how i was as a kid. I literally ran everywhere i went. Actually hurt me socially cause most kids arent like that so i was often alone when running

    To and from school, church, friends house, park, gas station, wherever. Was always a distance runner too from a very young age. Not sure i was 4 and able to run that far but its quite possible.

    Pretty damn cool though

    I have never been able to post a video.

    Hell yeah! And you better figure out how to post that video.

    Your *** wasn't frozen in naught.

    Upload it to YouTube. Then you can easily put it on here. I think if you just post the link it will attach.

    My six month old runs everywhere he goes. Literally runs circles around me. Last night I ran three miles with him. Correction: I ran three miles, he probably ran nine, back and forth and back and forth. He is a puppy, though. Maybe I should have mentioned that earlier.

    Does it cost to put a video on you tube?

    Okay my daughter just ran her annual 40 yard dash. She always does it just before she turns the next age.

    As old 1 year old: 19.0
    2 year old: 13.3
    3 year old: 10.7
    Today—4 year old: 8.9 twice but it was wind-aided and I ran next to her which isn’t scientific at all so...I’ll say a 9.0. Maybe 9.1.

    Brought her yesterday for the third time because she’d continually asked me for a couple of days. I am a dumbass and can’t figure out how to play the video but here’s a screenshot of my five year old once she reached the top. So proud of her.

    It’s somewhere between 25-30 feet up.

    Don't be that guy unless being that guy motivates success.

    Did she try the other sides with fewer “rocks”?

    She tried four different walls iirc based on the instructor’s choices. I’m sure they’re the easiest walls.

    After she did that one in the pic, my daughter asked to do an inverted one. That lasted all of 3-4 minutes before she asked to change to another wall.

    Honestly, I’m super proud of her due to overcoming any fear she has. Don’t get me wrong. I’m sure next time she might go 60% of the way up and ask to come down. But she’s cleared a mental hurdle once which means she can do it again. There’s zero chance I would’ve done that before 5th grade. That might even be generous and I may not have done it til 7th grade or thereafter.

    Having said all that, she isn’t getting the full affect of rock climbing. The instructor had the rope pulled so taut that my daughter’s weight was lessened, thus minimizing the fatigue that comes with climbing.

    I loved that she wanted the chalk though and would pause here and there mid-climb to get her hands powdered up.

    Ha. I did it for about 4-6 months during my last year of college. Best shape of my life.

    Ran a 8.8 today. Virtually no improvement in six months. But she had played at a park for a couple hours right beforehand, she’s so damn little and hasn’t grown much at all the last six months and it’s fairly cold out which isn’t good for sprinting. If she has a little growth spurt, I’m thinking she runs around an 8.3 in the summer time before she turns six.

    The AAU record is supposedly a 7.7 for a five year old.
