Last night the four of us took a walk in the neighborhood park. We plan to run/walk a 5k with boht kids later this fall, and so we have been trying to get Alex to run a little (a couple hundred yards at a time) to practice a little.
Allison loves to run. She'll just take off and go. Alex doesn't like it quite as much and tends to goof off more when we run.
So, the three of us were doing a slow loop around the park and Alex was being goofy. Allison's advice, shouted at Alex while running as fast as her little legs could take her:
"Just do like I do - run and don't stop!"
