Mommy, my legs are so busy!

Posted on Mar 20, 2013

My bohemian trail runner

Well, its happened.  My daughter is trail running.  In part, its to mimic mommy, but I see pure joy as this little smile appears when she sets foot onto a trail near our house.  A few weekends ago, I asked if she wanted to go for a walk by the creek.  An immediate, “Yes!” and she was squealing.  So we put on our running shoes and the next thing I know, she started running down the trail.  She is pretty good.  I mean, her foot strike was definitely mid-heel and her arms were pumping.  Before long, I realized we had just gone a mile.  She asked me if she could pee on the trail.  “You mean, go potty honey?” I asked while trying to contain my smile.  Could this be the proudest moment ever?  She pulled down her sweats and proceeded to get her business done without a single issue.  It was amazing.

As I begged her to start heading home, knowing, figuring her legs couldn’t carry her much longer, she turned her head to me as I was running behind her and said, “Mommy, my legs are really busy.”  I busted out laughing and thought, my god she’s right.  Sometimes I think the same thing when I’m running- my legs are so freaking busy.  Now, that for sure must rank up there with the funniest things she has ever said. She made it 2 miles for the day.

And so running became fun again, right when I needed the reminder.  I laughed and we were silly and my daughter taught me to have fun again and not be so serious.  I wonder who’s teaching who in this life?  I think I’m the student. No, I know so.

This weekend I get to test out my, “have fun, laugh, and enjoy life” mantra as I head to Zion for a training run on the beautiful Zion 100 course, where in about a month I get to go have really busy legs.
