Settled for the muddy, it has been POURING here, Junior high track. We let the Little Studs out, Big Brother ran with me as I timed him for 1 lap or 400 meters. He kept looking back at Daddy and Little brother and tripped.... OOPS!! I have learned not to make a big deal about minor falls, he popped right back up and kept plugging along.
I reminded him to swing his arms, coaching practice.. HE MADE IT!! Not a PR, his PR is 3:10, but a respectable 3:12 for 1 lap including a spill. Next came the little guy, how he runs in a diaper I will never know, he and Daddy came in at 3:47. Breathing hard we kicked the soccer ball around as the clouds opened up.. It poured, so we whipped out the rain cover and continued on our way.
Muscle Man and I regretted not putting on our hats before leaving.. We joked "I wonder if it is going to rain today." and zoomed home... 2.5 miles of fun and family.
- FUNNY: Little stud #1 was talking about "training" the other day. "I need to train tomorrow Mommy." Tall Mom "Really buddy? What are you training for?" LS#1 "Well I need to get better at the play ground, jump higher, and slide down the slide faster. I gotta train to get better." LOL!! Only in a family of a Runner and Bodybuilder would a 4 and 3/4 year old talk about "training." Poor kid, his training got rained out, thankfully he got some "protein to get stronger." Kids crack me up!!
