Running with a 7 y/o? Crazy! Especially since the course I run near the house is very hilly with one great big hill that I call Big Bertha. Well, I'm really thrilled to report that Hank did a great job and didn't whine or complain at all!
We started out with me pushing the stroller, and I lasted maybe a quarter of a mile before my arms were screaming. So I wimped out and passed it on to Jake. After Hank and I finished, we walked back to Jake and the kids, and I ran with the stroller for the last quarter mile. I need to work on my upper body strength!
Me and the little ones
The boys after I wimped outMe - Really? What do you count? (I'm thinking fence posts, birds, etc)
Hank - awkward pause.... Um, numbers?
Then he asked me if numbers went to 'amphibian.'
Me- Do you mean 'infinity?'
Hank - Yes, amphibian.
And then my favorite:
When we get back, we're going to need to eat and eat and eat and eat. Especially me with these skinny legs
We ran two miles in 22:34 which is approximately an 11:16 pace. Not bad at all for a little guy running up big hills.
