So, after yesterday’s post and with these words of motivation stuck in my head I decided that I would wake the kids up early and go get my run in before I had my first meeting this morning. Besides, last night both of them expressed interest in doing a road race, “like Mommy does.”
We got up, got ready and headed to a near by park that has a half-mile track and a playground right next to it. Apparently, my kids want to do a race but they don’t want to run in one. I told them they had to do one lap with me then the playground was all theirs. After 15 steps all I heard was …
“Are you serious?”
“We have to run ALL the way around this?”
They are so complaining to the wrong person.
“Well, I’m old,” I told them and “laziness will get you no where in life.”
I must really be old because I started sounding like somebody’s mother - ahem - and I’m certain they tuned me out. Never the less they ran (if that’s what you call it) one half-mile, and I got in three.
I snapped a few pics to memorialize this momentous occasion.
How about you? What activities are you and your kids doing together this summer?
