From 2 Laps to 5k
Last week I wrote about my my friend Benjamin and how he introduced me to the world of autism. I also mentioned how the expectations for him in PE class were different than his peers, for example only having to run two warm up laps around the gym instead of four. Here is a fun video from almost two years ago when Ben ran his first 5k. It's been awesome to witness his progress during his fitness journey. Enjoy!
