Just Be A Kid Some Times

Last weekend I had the pleasure of running the Manatee River Run with my son and grandson.  Since it was a narrow trail, the organizer suggested that we not use the jogging stroller.  This made for an interesting time.  Having a 4 year old run/walk 5 miles is definitely a  challenge.  Anyway, we covered about half the distance but what it taught me was children have a great sense of when to run and when to walk.  Liam would run until tired and then walk a while.  When he was ready to run again, off he went.  The other thing is that kids run naturally – they just run.  We as adults often get caught up to much on form and technique that we forget that running is supposed to be fun.

Sometimes we just need to be like a kid,  pace ourselves and just run.
