Anyhoo, the little man is working on running a 5k. He asked me one day if I would get him some Legos if he ran 3 miles. I thought that was a fair deal and a good goal to work toward and I also thought it would take several weeks. Boy, I was wrong on that one! He went from running just a mile each outing to one day saying, "Today, I think I'll run 3 miles." You know what? He did it, no prob. It was amazing and glorious. You know what we talked about during that run? How much I was willing to spend on Legos if he achieved his goal that day.
Here he is with his two earned Lego sets. He has his sights set on a pretty spectacular set once he reaches 10K.
I'm waiting on taking him out on the road for a real run. He hasn't mastered running without needing to use the bathroom several times each outing which means we are track bound until the bladder is under control.
