Kids say the darnest thing (Read 181 times)

    So I saw bhearn's sig line and made me think back to November what our 6 yr old said.

     

    bhearn's sig line: "When I got too tired to run anymore I just pretended I wasn't tired and kept running anyway"

     

    We were heading to a local Turkey Trot.  The DW was running the 10k and the kiddos were doing the Mashed Potato mile.  Our youngest has a habit of trying to sprint in everything irregardless of distance.  We've been explaining to him the difference between easy running and hard running.  The conversation went something like this:

     

    Mom - "Now you know, you're running a mile.  That's two times around our block.  So start off slow and pace yourself."

    Kid - "Mom, I start out fast and I stay fast."

     

    Mom - speechless.  Me - chuckling to myself.

     

    Well, he went out and proved Mom wrong.  He took off and kept pushing through the mile.  He came in at a sub-8.

     

    Kids do say the darnest thing sometimes.


    just a simple cat

      He knew he better put his feet where his mouth was.   Big grin  Awesome!

       

      I  guess as you get more bodacious, you begin to lose more brain cells, because there is a limit to how much magnificence your body can house

          Makes me think somebody got some running and competitive genes from somewhere.

                His older sister beat him last year so he was out to get her this year.  Wish I was better at posting pictures because I got some good shots of him near the finish.  He pushed the limits that day...almost to the point of puking.
