Well kiddos, I was wrong. Finn did great! He ran about 2.5 miles and finished strong. I was really proud of him. He had plenty of support along the route as well. Being seven (7) random runners "high fived" him, cheered him on, and one guy even came up and rubbed his head.
Enjoying the spoils.
After his race, Finn then went straight over to play the last two quarters of his basketball game. He was so tired, but played really good nonetheless. The next morning he told me that his legs hurt.
