The other night we had a little walk after dinner. A little walk that turned into a mighty run for Josh.
We walked along the water until we reached the stadium. Josh and Zoë charged right in to that part where you can do 100-meter sprints and began racing up and down.
Here is Josh, pretending to be on the starting block…
…and he’s off!
Then we eventually made our way inside the stadium. It’s open to the public when there are no events scheduled and most of the residents around here make use of it for jogging or just leisurely walks around the track.
N, Josh’s “cousin friend” for the past week, who had been visiting with us and who just turned 11 that night, decided to do one lap around the track. Josh decided to join the race. The two of them were really running… running… on a hot and humid summer night. No slowing down until they did an entire lap.
Here’s Josh catching his breath after chasing N around the track. His face practically the same color as the track! I asked him why he didn’t just stop and rest. He told me that he needed to chase after N because she was “too fast.”
Boys! They get so competitive so early on.
