I had my bag of tricks, snacks and toys, we went to the trail, hoping for more level terrain... The sun started to set and I was immediately regretting taking our little ones out so late. I sped up and knew I would only get in 4 miles. The FUN part about pushing little guys is you get so much attention.
Comments from friendly passers:
Lady solo walking in flip flops, "Looks like they have the easy job."
Tall Man on Bike, "Someday they will return the favor."
Couple with 2 dogs, on my way back to the car "Wow that was FAST."
I felt anything but fast, the trail is slightly inclined in some spots and I could feel it 333% when I had to really push. Little Stud #1, our trash talker, said "Can you run any faster Mommy?" I quickly replied "Yes, I run much faster when I am not pushing you." LOL There was one other runner on the trail, she had a kind smile and looked strong.
The boys were AMAZING!! They never complained and just relaxed pointing out everything on the trail. At one point they decided to play Hide and Seek... Ummmmm... it went like this..
- LS#2- Counted to 20 with his head down
- LS#1- Hid with his head between his legs
- At 20 LS#2 opened his eyes and said "Found you!" Not too many places to hide in the Double Jogger. They played twice as I laughed.....kids are sooo funny..
They also played "Race" and "Tom and Jerry." I got a horrible stomach cramp at mile 3.5...OUCH!! It was getting very DARK, the Full Moon was out. I could not walk so I ran through it.. the other thing I ran through was bugs.
- BUG Count: 5 hit my face, 1 in my mouth, 1 in my nose, 3 in my eyes, 1 attacked LS#2 "Ah a Bee!" and 1 LS#1 said "I squished the Bee!"
4 miles done in just over 9:00 pace, not too shabby!! Hope you are well, thanks again to EVERYONE for your kind support and prayers.
