Day 313: Skyping with Harbeck, a photo by hdurnin on Flickr.

After my students completed their math/phys. ed. project on cross-country running, they pro-rated their pace to the distance required to run a marathon. Then I shared @charbeck’s results from his recently completed Toronto Marathon. They were blown away.

The next day, students had the chance to ask Mr. Harbeck about his preparation, race and recovery. One of my quieter students, who had recently completed his first 10 k, was jumping with excitement after Mr. Harbeck asked him about his own success.

Thank-you, Chris, for making today so special for my kids.
