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.

    Great for you to have a walking buddy!! I'm trying to get my husband motivated to join me on my C25K program but so far no progress with that!

    That is great, and you are an awesome role model for her! She is on her way to developing life long healthy habits.

    That is way-cool! Getting her involved in extra exercise and making it fun,, you are doing your daughter such a lifelong favor. Picture her when she is thirty and you are elderly. She will never forget this time with you....
