Exercising with the kids is what’s up, you just never know what nuggets of wisdom are going to come out.
Today, Boney (7) and Big Homie (8) joined me on a walk/run.
I’ll give those two serious credit, their little legs have to work pretty hard to keep up with me, no matter how slow I’m going.
I heard classic phrases such as:
Boney: “Exercise hurts.”
CSD: “Yea, but it hurts less than a heart attack, brittle bones, …”
Boney: “and it’s better than being old and not being able to pull yourself up!”
But just when I think she’s got it and after another jog interval…
Boney says to Homie: “He’s trying to kill us.”
Big Homie: “No, this will help us live longer.”
CSD: “Like Lee Haney said, if it doesn’t kill you, it will make you stronger!”
While they’ve watched some Lee on YouTube, I’m sure neither one of them had a clue as to who I was talking about.
