Go fast enough to get there but slow enough to see. ~ Jimmy Buffett quote and running with family.

Running is most fun when it’s done under a big blue sky, the temperature is slightly cool, and the company is excellent. Running was most fun today.

I ran with my daughter and grandson today. She took this picture of me. I should have been taking a picture of her!

We have never run together before. Walked but not run. It was after she ran a marathon in the spring of 2013 that I decided I needed to find a way to run. She moved from Arizona that summer. In the fall of 2013 I took my first baby running steps.

We follow each other on RunKeeper. But while I run on the flat desert, she runs uphill both ways in the mountains while pushing a jogging stroller! RunKeeper should give her extra credit. I joined her today in her interval training.

Best. Run. Ever.

Do you run? Do you run with friends or family? How’s the weather where you are?

Happy weekend ~~~~~~~~ Angie Mc

    • You know this great time, Van ❤ What's better than spending quality time with our young adult children?! I'm glad you had a chance to be a runner. I actually still prefer to walk, but for practical reasons, I run for now. Enjoying the ride…run 😀

  1. Angie & Vanbytheriver, I once heard from one man he was told by a famous orthopedist running led to chondromalations of his knees, he was told it is crutial our joints anatomy is strictly right to run safely. It is believed marching is much safer. Just saying.

  2. Yes, I have been running for almost 4o years but I prefer to run alone. I am slower now but I still keep moving as it is great exercise and therapy. Lucky you to be able to run with daughter and grandson. My daughter also.

    • CC I’m beyond impressed that have been running for almost 40 years! Wow, you are doing something very right 😀 I agree about exercise and therapy. I mostly run alone to clear my head…or more to just be for a few minutes ❤

  3. I am not, and have never been, a runner. I know I could work up to and over the too “out of shape” part of it, but a certain part of my physical anatomy would not make running fun for me! Lol I am (kindofsortofbutnotreally, cough cough) working on walking more and more. My goal is to do at least one 5K walk before Fall is over.
