Runner Girl

This tennis playing gymnast turned into a runner overnight it seems. Because she’s been competing in gymnastics since age three, she can basically do any endurance sport well, like running or triathlon.

She may have chosen to do intervals for the recent 5K, but the following day, we went for a 3.6 mile run at a zone 2 pace, and she ran the whole freaking way without needing a break. The next morning, she woke me up at 6:30am to go running, which means I had to get up and run in the cold with her. Near the end of our run, we did stop at the park for some fast slides.

Right now, she says the runs with me are easy peasy. Pretty soon, she’ll be kicking my butt and running with daddy instead of me.
