Training a running partner
I'm ecstatic that Amberle wants to run the Susan G Komen event with me this year.
I've never pushed the girls to be runners, although hoped they might.
She did 2 1/2 miles today and while I was bubbling over with pride, she asks me the question we all ultimately want answered:
why some thing that is supposed to be good for you hurts so much and why some things that are so good (like chocolate, she names specifically, she's definately my kid) are bad for you?
In my best mom-runner wisdom, I say the more you run, the less it will hurt and the more you run the less chocolate is bad for you. Ah, parenthood and how much we make it up as we go along.
