I found a running partner. Someone I can run with every time I run.
Over the past week, My daughter has expressed interest in running with me. I have been trying to get her to run with me since I started this. But, she really wanted to run this time. So, on Saturday, we headed out to a running store and had her fitted up for shoes. She is very anti-pink which made me laugh because the first pair of shoes they suggested were pink with a flower pattern on them.
We bought her a pair of shoes and some socks at the running store, then we went to Target to get her some running clothes. She bought wicking everything, and I mean everything. Then we headed home, it was late, we all had a long day so we decided that we would start her running on Sunday.
Sunday morning was cold, rainy and downright miserable, so we waited, hoping the rain would stop at least. It finally did around 6 pm so we went out for a run.
I did not want to push her to hard her first day out. So we decided on a mile, trying a 30 second run 30 second walk method. We did really well and had a great time. Tomorrow we are going to try and go to the track at her high school and run there. I also got her excited on trying a 5K. That will be really fun :)
