Me: Are you sure?
Her: Yep, I'm sure
Me: Ok, then you will have to train. Mommy doesn't just wake up one day and go do a triathlon. It takes hard work and practice.
Her: When can we start?
We started tonight.
We rode our bikes for 1.5 miles.
We walked/ran for half a mile.
We were sweaty when we finished. As we approached the house she said, "I'm doing this. I am actually doing this". At that moment I KNEW I needed video:
WHO CARES THAT I HAVE GAINED 35 POUNDS?!!?!
THAT is the reward.
Not a smaller pant size or even a faster mile.
I have a little girl that wants to be like me.
