ellie bike


E wanted to go trail running with me today. It's warm (low 80s) and very breezy, and it felt good to be outside. At first, she was loving the foliage and flowers (things are very green after all the rain), but after a bit, she kept saying, "How much longer?"

When we made it down, she said, "I don't think I'll go with you again." Hehe...that's what happened last summer too. Both kids think 'trail running' sounds like so much fun, but when they're out there in the heat and dust and pain, they realize that staying at home and reading would be better ;)

Despite that, she only slowed me down about 15 minutes, so it wasn't too bad; I won't complain if she stays behind next time, however.
