I let my wife go out for a run in the early afternoon, so she could put our younger son down for a nap. At that time, I went out for a short run with my older son. It was great to run with him - all of the things that amaze a 6 year old and the things he says are just wonderful ("it feels like Spring...perhaps the Groundhog saw his shadow and Spring is near...")
He made it a full half mile before we needed to stop for our first walk break. Not too bad for a 6 year old. We ended up running a little over a mile and a quarter. I'm hoping to continue running with him over the next few months - and maybe get him ready for a 5K this summer :-)
The only unfortunate part was that I did not have an opportunity to go out for a longer run today on my own. With guests arriving in 2 hours, I don't think I'll be able to slip out now.
