This little guy was cute as a button and probably about five years old. He stopped with his brother and Dad to hoop with us at the Ukrops Monument Ave 10K.
I watched as he picked up a hoop with the biggest smile on his face, stood inside and gave it a whirl (it never touched his body) it went around once and fell quickly to the ground. When it fell, so did the smile from his face. It was like all the fun drained out of his little body and he was about to give up, defeated. I ran over, showed him to touch the hoop to his back then spin it.
and that little guy was hooping like crazy from that moment on! Fun and smiles back on!
Then he felt like he could do anything! He skipped over to the pile of hoops picked up three and spun those and rocked it! He Could do anything!
