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.
