|Look at his form!|
Our first time out I laced up my running shoes, got Munchkin ready and on his bike and we headed out. I thought surely I can get at least 2 miles in with him riding his bike as much as he loves to do that. Well, after about 5 steps (literally) he started complaining about being tired and needed a break. Then it was I was running too fast. We made it the half mile (exaggerating a bit) to the park and that was our final destination. I felt like all the hard work I had been putting in to get into running shape was soon going to go down the drain.
So a few weeks went by and I just didn't not want to run. I've been sneaking off for a quick run while Munchkin is at my parents house. Our neighbor and friends have taken him for a bike ride/walk while I'm out running.
On the fourth of July I was scheduled to do a short 3 mile run and instead of taking Munchkin to my parents house I decided to load up Munchkin's bike, fill up our water bottles and head to the local high school track. It was a great idea.
Running on the track is not my favorite thing but it is worth it so that Munchkin and I can get moving together. I'll settle for a short run there every week so that he can come along.
What are you and your family doing to stay fit and get moving this summer?
