Thoughts for the Day

What I’ve learned while training for a half marathon with a child…

  • It’s much more difficult than I imagined.
  • I would much rather be playing with my boy instead of running on the weekends for an hour or more!
  • I still have the same thoughts as I’m running…”Who thinks running 6+ miles is fun?!!”
  • Running 3 miles with a jogging stroller feels like 10 miles!
  • Going for a run on the weekdays/most tired days is very challenging!
  • I know that I will be super proud of myself when it’s all over (I seriously can’t wait for it to be over).
  • Jackson is a great partner and encourager!

Living with a newly walking child means…

  • I constantly worry about him falling down and getting that first skinned knee.
  • I DON’T have to worry about him getting nasty germs on his hands (from crawling) and then sucking his thumb.
  • I have a child who is obsessed with walking everywhere!
  • I have a child who is obsessed with shoes! Lord help me!
  • His pretty, perfect shoes will now get dirty.
  • My child thinks he is the coolest kid around!
  • He can reach things higher up!
  • He’s already starting to run!
  • It’s a WHOLE NEW WORLD folks!!!
