I finally have a walking buddy
Friday, September 26, 2014
Last night my daughter decided to come with me on my walk. She's almost 8 and I told her before we left that she couldn't complain if she was coming with me. She had lots of fun and talked the entire 3.5 miles. She did a good job of keeping up with me and at times she would sprint ahead of me so she could stop and take a quick break. I was hoping we'd see a deer on our walk since we went so late, but no such luck. We did those 3.5 miles in just under an hour, so only about 5 min longer than it normally takes me.
She did complain, just once. We were within a 1/3 of a mile from the house and she said her foot really hurt and that I should carry her. LOL I made her walk faster because it was getting really dark. The days are definitely getting shorter.
But she has decided that she will walk with me on the days she doesn't have her dance classes. I also told her that if she continues to walk with me that next September we would do the Komen Race for a Cure. She thought that was the best idea ever. Hopefully she can keep this up as long as the weather holds out. I told her we wouldn't be walking once the snow starts and she was glad about that.
