Last night we decided to take the boys over to Lifetime Fitness and do one of their summer fun run events. It was called the Watermelon Fun Run, so I thought, how could it be bad, right?! Oh right…it was running Just kidding.
I honestly can’t remember the last time I ran more than 400m at a time…
Maybe a month, maybe two months. This was going to be interesting.
You could do either a 1.5 mile or a 3 mile run. Rowan really wanted to do 3 and Carson really wanted to
do zero eat watermelon. Luckily, Ryan joined in so we could each take a kid and go along our merry ways.
Here we are at the start—>
About mile 1—>
These kids really need to learn how to pace themselves. It wasn’t long before Carson lost gas. ( In his defense it was 89°F and the boys did play at the park for 3 hours in the afternoon. ) So, Ryan stayed back with him and Rowan and I kept going.
Here we are at mile 1.5—>
We waited for Ryan and Carson to finish and then headed out for lap #2.
We walked a little, ran a little and still finished strong. 3 miles. 30:44 and Rowan got 2nd place boys! WooHoo!
So proud of these little dudes and the watermelon was good too.
I haven’t ran in a very long time and this was just what I needed. A. Fun. Run.
Thanks Lifetime Fitness for a free, fun, family event!
