Running with my DAD!

Friday is my day to run!  I don't have much time during the week which makes Running on Friday a PRIORITY!  Not sure how it happened but I got my dad to come over to my side of town and run with me a week ago!

Getting ready to GO!
We haven't run together since our Triathlon debut in 2009!  Yah, it's been a while!  He had just come back from a business trip so it was a great way to catch-up!  Not to mention I have been telling him about this new ice cream shop called, Sub Zero which I knew he would love!  And if you can RUN before ice cream...it's a smart thing to do!

We had a great run and I tried to force talk him into another triathlon with me, at least the one we did a couple years ago in our hometown!  I thing I can get him to do it!

Thank you, DAD for being silly with me for camera...
Yah, we can have some fun together!
Running with my family is such a special thing and I totally soak up the time we have when we do it!  It's a major highlight for me!  I don't get to see my family as much as I would prefer so I love when we can get together and do something active, like...eating ICE CREAM...oh and running too!  My dad is a biker (does the Seattle to Portland race every year) and a kayaker and I have forced encouraged him into running, again.  He used to run cross country in high school and swore he would not run again...little did he know I would get him to RUN again!  I'm really looking forward to getting my new bike and biking the back roads of where I grew up...it's the best place for LONG bike rides, can't wait!  Though running is a lot easier to talk, not so much on a bike ride!
Sub Zero Ice cream!  Yummy!
Oh and after our run, we had a great afternoon...we went and had lunch with, Max at his school, then went and got Cole and headed over for some lunch and then some ICE CREAM!

Love that you got to run with you Dad. I ask my parents all the time to be active and they decline. My dad did walk the turkey trot a couple years ago though - I was very proud! Ice cream is calling my name now!!!
