The Bleasdale Clan has a reputation for being amazing athletes. I’ve blogged about the fact that I hope Landon get’s the Bleasdale athletic genes, because oh my, I’m no athlete.
Don excelled in every sport he touched growing up, and his mother was a great athlete and still walks for an hour on many days. Don’s sister and her husband are talented runners and some of the best in their age group in the U.S., L’s cousins are all amazing athletes — you get the idea.
And after L came in second place in his first little race in May, we think he might just have some talent as well. It’s not soccer, I can tell you that as of now, but it could be tennis, and he likes running.
I was so thrilled for him. And thrilled that he didn’t mind not being first or second, he never even mentioned it. I want him to have fun at sports and not stress about the result, and he can sometimes be a perfectionist.
