    Heh, I was just looking at the 1000 mile group's YTD graph (I just hit 1k miles this AM, go me!). My son was peeking over my shoulder and asked "where's the pace bunny?!" He totally gets it! Wink k

      Big grin mY son Jacob (4 years) always asks me when I get home, "Good run, Mom?" And running is such a part of our life/schedule that he now asks on my days off, "Mom, you gonna run today?" I'm hoping one of the boys picks up the love of running. But I have a feeling that if either of them do it will be the 2 year old. At the very least it will get him to burn off all the energy! I think Jacob will be the football player........... ........which of course means that Trevor will play football and Jacob will be a runner. That's about how accurate I've been to date. Big grin

        Ha, as my friend and I ran today we were chuckling about how energetic my son is--she said he's the most active kid she's ever seen (that's what ADHD will do, LOL). And at school Dane would get outside and pretty much run back and forth for the entire time they'd be on the playground. But I tried to get him to run with me ONCE this Summer and after 30 seconds he was begging to stop, 'cause he was too tired and simply could not run another step... Get him out on his bike with daddy, however, and he will go 7 miles with no trouble. I think he's going to be a little cyclist. I'd probably be MUCH better at cycling than I am at running, but races are hard to come by and I live for the PR, so running it is. I have a feeling once I get to the age where my times start to creep slower that I will switch over to cycling entirely. k
