Sethie was probably six or seven years old when he lined up with Dad for the start of his first 5k fun run.
Ready. Set. Bang. Hundreds of pounding sneakers burst onto the open road. A kid flashed by and Sethie turned on the giddyup. Tried to keep up with him.
Dad-san trotted up alongside Sethie. He lay his hand on the Nutchie's shoulder and said, "Slow down. Pace yourself. You'll catch that kid soon enough."
And he did.
