a pair became one

three steps, one blink – he is gone

Peyton was here just a second ago…

Running on  the trail with my son Peyton, sort of – We started together, passed each other twice and I found him by the car.  He had been waiting for about 5 minutes. Humph!  🙂

    I’m just impressed that you can actually run! lol Running and I just are not the best of friends. Give me some Zumba any day of the week!

      Aha – you are a Zumba junkie. I used to teach Salsa. Yes, I run and bike. If I could afford to belong to a fitness facility, I would swim. Someday I hope to get back to triathlons again. Till then, I get my butt beat by Peyton. He has soccer trouts next week, so he must get in good shape.

    Did he leave you in a cloud of dust or just circle back and wait at the car? Either way, kids will do this to you every time…no respect. 🙂

      Yep. Cloud of dust. He did run. We passed each other out on the trail. He has that soon-to-be 16 yr old energy. Boy, I am feeling old. He beat the pants off of me today. I am beat. 😉

    My young fella is 16 and I remember having to wait for him in my kayak but I can see the time fast approaching where he will (like Peyton) wait for me.
    Not fair that they get faster as they get older and we get slower 🙂

      no, it is not, though it makes me want to run faster!

    If only it were possible to bottle their energy and enthusiasm.
