Hitting the Pavement
It was making us a little sad that the girls are missing an entire 6 months of sports because of the attack on the Genius. She cannot do contact sports and of course, no place here, offers track for 6 year olds. We decided to take matters into our own hands. It has been FUN! My hubby took the girls yesterday, but today, we all went to the track. The Hippie, staying true to form, played in the sand the entire time! The Genius and I ran together for 1 mile and it was a real sweet fun time! She loved it and being type A really enjoyed having a goal to focus on. My husband ran on his own, but afterwards he took the Genius and did stairs with her. Then he had us all doing lunges out on the field, running backwards and other "fun" stuff =). After all that, he chased the girls and played tag with them. We all had a great time! Now the Genius wants a "real" pair of running shoes like her Mommy. So, tonight I making her a chart and once she hits a 20 mile mark, we will take her and let her get a pair of running shoes!
