So I’m back into the regular routine–sort of. Mondays are my day off so I usually like to take a little bit of a longer run while Sam is at school and Levi and Nate are sleeping. Well, the day got away from me and before I knew it was almost time for school to end. I figured out a great compromise. I’d just run and finish up @ the front door of Sam’s school. Then we’d enjoy a leisurely walk home–perfect!
I didn’t have much time for a long run, but I decided to push the pace of my four miler. Down I went into Georgetown at a pretty good clip, but by the time I hit Canal Rd, I was feeling the effects of my August running hiatus (or maybe it was the heat from the mid-day sun, along with the car exhaust and my dark shirt–what was I thinking?). It was an uphill climb for the last 15 minutes of my run and by the time I arrived @ Stoddert Elementary, I was spent. Thankfully I had that cool down walk ahead of me.
“We’re walking home!” I exclaimed as I met Sam at the door of his classroom. Sam had a better idea. “Let’s run!” I said ok thinking he’d last for a block or two–he ran the whole way home! It’s a mile from his school to our apartment and it’s all uphill. At one particularly steep point, when I was sure he would stop, I slowed down to a walk–Sam sprinted past me! I guess I better get myself back into shape soon. Looks like running is in Sam’s future. Anybody know where I can find some cheap running shoes–kid’s size 11?
