Hitching a ride when he goes for some grocery shopping is a great way to run a different route.
I smell an opportunity!
Yesterday we went to visit one of the local highschools, to see if it would suit our 12-year old son. The distance from that particular school to our home is about 5 miles. So I smelled a great running opportunity!
But how was I going to look both neat and presentable as a mom, and wear my running clothes? Because I didn't want a big hassle of having to change my clothes. Luckily I own a simple black climacool shirt and some ditto running tights. I pulled one of my mommy skirts over my tights, and teamed it with my black shirt. Voila, I looked quite presentable. Then I put on a pair of cowboy boots, which are real easy to take off, and I was ready for the visit to the high school.
After we finished there, I exchanged my cowboy boots for my running shoes, and did a quick striptease by losing my skirt.
I turned myself from a mom into a runner faster than Clark Kent turned into Superman!
How do you combine your day to day life with running?
