Talking with teen age son

Friday, July 15, 2011

I knew that running would give me better health and more self confidence, what I didn't know is it would give me something to talk about with my teen age son. I've only been jogging for a couple of years, while he's been running for 6 years which puts him in the position to give me advice. Today he helped me pick out a digital watch that I can more accurately time myself and start doing minutes during my runs (jogs). We discuss our runs, local trails and nutrition. Both of us ran the 10 mile cape mountain run (he came in 2nd, I was about an hour behind him). I never knew that I could have this relationship with my son and it's all due to me getting my buns off the couch and start running.
