Today I went for my 'city run'. It's my most interesting run in terms of different views. I run along the railroad track, trains thundering past me. Then I have to cross three bridges, and at the end of my run there's this little harbor with boats! After the boats it's only a few minutes and I'm surrounded by lots of shops, which I pay no heed of course. I'm a serious runner!
To let my body know it's time for a break I walk to a nice coffeehouse and have a cup of coffee. After my cup of coffee I usually run home.
But this time I thought it was a good idea to buy some sticky buns for the kids, to have for lunch. So I walked along the market place, surrounded by all kinds of merchandise and smells of french fries and fish. I was almost ready to run home when I stumbled upon a booth with sweet little dresses for about 15 dollar!
Some might say I got sidetracked, but personally I'ld like to think I was multitasking.
Which just goes to show how much motherhood and running can offer each other. Running teaches moms valuable lessons about pacing themselves, and motherhood teaches runners to multitask.
It's a win-win combination.
Also, I look really good in that 15 dollar dress!
