My New Running Buddy

In an effort to get more movement in my life I have enlisted a new running/jogging/walking buddy. He is the cutest little 3.5 year old, my son Maddox. He is a real slave driver. He loves to run and doesn't like to rest for a breather very much. Yesterday we went around the big block. He did a lot better than I thought he would and he had a great time. I thought we would just walk around the block. Oh no he wanted to run. So we jogged and walked. Then later he went to swimming lessons. He will be a triathlete for sure!
Today we decided to go farther and with a destination in mind. We went to the neighborhood park. It is only about 1.5 miles. He ran even more today and didn't want to rest. So I am hoping that we can work our way up to a 5K. 
I am so proud of my little partner and he is getting me outside and both of us moving.

That's so cute! And kudos to you for enrolling your son in swimming lessons. That's one of the things I always regretted I never did as a kid.
