“I was doing a lot of thinking last night, Full Speed, and I came to the conclusion if we need to sell our house to subsidize your Olympic shot-put aspirations, I’m willing to do it.”
To qualify in the shot-put at a middle school track meet you have to reach a minimum of 30 feet.
Full Speed’s record is 16.
I asked him point-blank, “Do they award points for style?”
Okay, so maybe not the shot-put. How about the 4 x 800 he helped run?
Considering his team (which is categorized ‘B’ team for a reason) came in 12th out of 14, maybe this won’t be his event either.
However, they did lap a team. Maybe there’s hope after all.
But wait, the team they lapped consisted of elementary school kids.
Looks like I just saved thousands of dollars in training fees.
