The good news. I began counseling a Scout on this badge this week. It is
first time in three years that anyone has contacted me about it.
The bad news. The Scout is not quite 14, but is as tall as the typical
10/11 year old.
This was a significant handicap in the mile run. He may eventually meet the
(at least if I use the most current APHERDD standards, rather than the
ones in the book. On the other hand, being short is a significant
distance running. The requirements aren't quite right for this boy. And
also, he may
possibly have a mild, previously undiagnosed, exercise-induced asthma....
