Running with a bike pacer!

It's another busy Friday.  I squeezed in a quick workout with Jillian Michaels this morning, doing the 30 Day Shred DVD before going to Cub Scout meetings.  Then, after lunch I wanted to get in a run.  I was thinking of doing the 9 mile loop, and I asked my son, Sam, if he wanted to ride along on his bike.  He loved the idea and ran out to make sure his tires had air and to grab his helmet.  As we headed outside, we realized it had started to rain, though.  When I suggested maybe we shouldn't go, an instant look of disappointment swept across Sam's face, so I decided we'd just do the 4.5 mile loop and then see how things were going.  He was fine with that, and we took off.  Having him on his bike staying just ahead of me was very helpful to keep my pace up.  We did the 4.5 miles with an average pace of just over 10 min./mile.  It felt great.  When we stopped at an intersection at one point, I gave him a drink of water from my hydration belt and he said, "This is super fun!"  What an adventure for him, since he usually isn't allowed to go that far from the house on his bike!  The rain even held off just enough that we didn't get too wet. :)


  1. Super cute. My SIL does the same thing, plus, it's a safe way to run! I just put air in the double jogger today and took it for a little jog around the neighborhood. I love spring!

  2. Great idea!! I love the new look of your blog, too!
