"...Can I run a marathon with you?"

"Mom, when I am done with my nap can I RUN a MARATHON with you?"




My 4 year old son, Max is smart! I have been battling with him for an hour today to take a nap and he just opened his door for the millionth time and said the above! You know you’re a runner when your son says that to soften things and to sweet talk you!  I had to pause and smile for a moment and then had to inform him that I can't even run a marathon right now, but when he is older I hope we can run a marathon together.

He has been asking all week to run with me.  I can't wait until he can or at least ride his bike.  And he also keeps asking when he gets to ring the cow bell...because I told him I want him to ring it and the end of my marathon.  As frustrated as he can make me...he makes me laugh so much.

Can't wait until we can run together!

Running with your kids is awesome but so are the sweet things they say when they are little. All ages are good. (Well there were a few times in there I wouldn't have said that!) Great picture of your son!

So cute! I am really enjoying helping my kiddos (two of them anyway) train for a 5K. I tell (all four of them) that my goal is to someday run a marathon with them!

He is totally cute. And even at this age you can run with him. Make it short, make it fun and before you know it you will have a running partner. I often run with my son (early teens now) and those are some of the best times for us to talk and connect. Gosh, they grow up fast.
