Why run when no-one is chasing you?

What's fun about running when no-ones chasing you?....I don't understand the running thing at all!
Anyway my youngest son has been training hard and last night went in for the Swanage 4 mile fun run, we think he came in about 29th out of about 130 - 140 entries but not sure yet as the results have yet to be published. He managed to shorten his time from last year so he's pleased.
It was a family occasion as his brother and sister, us proud parents and his Grandparents turned out to cheer him on. Will, his older brother met him near the end and ran along side for a few yards to spur him on too.
My parents arrived in style on the Swanage Steam Railway and we waved them off later as they went back to Norden, just the other side of Corfe Castle, pulled by a diesel.
The boys intend to enter the wheelbarrow race tonight.......Oh dear, it gets worse!!!!!!
