another runner?

another runner?

I took Simon out for his “first” run. Quotes because he’s obviously run a lot before, and he’s even run a 5K. But this was the first time he’d dressed the part. I told him we’d go around the block a couple of times if he wanted, but it was really  up to him. 

He took off at a pretty quick pace and made it a 1/4 mile before he needed to stop and walk. So we walked for a bit, then ran the rest of the way around the block. It’s a little over 1/3 of a mile. And then he said he was done. He’d had enough for the day.

So that was it. We went inside.

I’m hoping for 2 laps next time, but we’ll see what he’s up for. I’m looking forward to seeing how this goes.

One thought on “another runner?

  1. I like that you left it up to him to decide how fast & far he wanted to go, so he doesn’t feel overwhelmed with the initial pressure in the beginning. I hope Ahonui will eventually get out there and be a runner too! But you’re a better example than I am. hehehe.

    BTW – did I tell you how CUTE this boy is? he’s so BIIIIG!!!
