Just as I got home, I check my email to see if the practice was still on. The email flashed and said track practice was canceled. Totally understand, it was misty and a little cold and old man winter is still laughing at spring. So I opened the door and saw the boys putting on their sweats and tights getting ready for practice, and I told them that practice was cancelled, and they were like, "Really?!?" So I asked if they would like to run around the University and they were happy to say, "Sure!" without hesitation. I smiled and got my gear on.
We ran around and Elijah did great, he ran 2 miles, then walked and ran back home and did about 4 miles total. Zachary and I took turns running forward and back with one of us always near Elijah. We were all happy with the workout. As soon as we got back home, Zachary and I picked up the pace and looped our neighborhood which was about a mile.
I really can't wait to do his first marathon and Ironman together. But I already told him to run his race and not wait for his hold man. Elijah is coming around to doing a marathon. Triathlon is still not in his blood yet.
