Man, I am bummed I didn't think to take my camera to the track tonight. I decided to do my 4 miles on the track by way of quarters, run one full speed which is a 1:30 to 1:45 pace, and one recovery jog around 2:15-2:30, 16 times. My son was in rare form, he opted out of his swim lessons so I jumped at the chance to drag him to the track instead. He actually really enjoys going to the track. As soon as we got there he took off running. He made it half way around before I started trying to catch him. He has such a great stride! I was so proud watching him run like that, so full of self-confidence and energy...oh that 4 year old energy! A man stretching even commented on the "little guy". Actually, a while back I posted a blog on Marathon Mommies about running mommies and the examples they set for their kids. I love that my son will grow up active and healthy and whether or not he picks up running isn't the point. I just want him to have a love for fitness and health. And I truly believe we are off to a good start.
