Rafe’s first meet of his first season of track.
I feel like I’ve been waiting for this moment for over 12 years now. As soon as he could walk he was running. The soundtrack of his early years is just me saying, “Rafe, slow down. Rafe, don’t run. Rafe, walk please.” on repeat.
And now I’m sitting in the bleachers yelling at him to run.
