So after the long bike ride I took the next day off. Today my inspiration is the kids. I haven't run in a little over a week so I am heading to Hayward Field to do some sprints around the track. I told my son that he could come with me if he wanted, it is time to shake out some of those summer time, too many video games, too much TV, and late nights cobwebs in preparation for school. He said he wanted to, so it is time to get him up and going. He's got 10 minutes before I start making noise and ratteling him out of bed, which gives me enough tie to grab my morning Red Bull and get dressed.
Ian joined me for a run around historic Hayward Field and boy was I proud of him. Not only did he run a pretty fast mile with me, in between laps we ran the stairs and did a few push-ups and crunches. Who knows maybe I have a budding track star on my hands. But already the 11 year old sounds like an old man, he's complaining about his knee hurting. It wasn't the hard workout that I needed, but it was well worth it, to be able to spend time doing something I love with Ian.
