There are days where I can definitely sit down and have a pity party about my kiddos growing up and me growing older and them leaving me in the near future as they get their own fabulous lives going. Then, there are days like today, when my awesom son sees me getting ready for a run and I nonchalantly ask him if he wants to join me and he drops his pencil and drawings and jumps at the opportunity. Him getting older to come on a run with me is definitely a perk! Him fitting into the same size running shoes as me, not so much as he takes my running shoes to school sometimes, ha ha ha! He is a runner at heart!
This is the second time we ran together, the first time we went 2 miles in about 15 minutes flat. I was dying! I never start off that fast unless I am racing and it is flat or downhill. Today, we went for 3 miles, they were nice and easy miles and he kept up with me the whole time. At the very end, I told him to sprint home as I cheered him on, he took off and left me in the dust. He got home about 15 seconds before me.
