Kate and Lexi ran in their first race today, a one mile fun run. They were pretty excited about it.
Lexi ended up falling about halfway through and scraping her knee and hands pretty badly. But she persevered and finished. I blamed it on her chuck taylors and I think she’s over her initial “I’m never running again!” phase, as long as she gets some new shoes and nike tempo shorts. It’s all about the gear for her.
Kate is hooked, and I hope to start running with her regularly. She’s faster than I am, so I hope I can keep up and stay motivated to do it with her.
