Practice Makes Perfect...40 Yard Dash


My four oldest boys run the 40 yard dash in football, but they haven't been happy with their times...so Nathaniel, Zach, and Andrew were up at 5:30am this morning, marked off 40 yards with chalk and were sprinting against each other. You'd think there would be a hint of cool in the morning air at 5:30am, but oh no! It was hot and humid, Nathaniel looked like we poured a bucket of water over his head after just a few races. We used the kitchen timer to get a ball park of their speed, it doesn't mark 10th and 100ths of a second...so it's kind of boring to get the same time over and over again. Maybe once they can run it in under 4 seconds we'll get a new clock, but for now, practice makes perfect, I hope.
