My New Running Partner

This is from last May.  The boys did a 1 mile fun run, even though those running numbers say "5K".  Jacob saw a classmate at this race who was registered to run the 5K itself and he asked, "Mom, why can't I do that?"  Well, no one ever said you couldn't!
Meet my new running partner, Jacob.

I invited him on a recent run, since I was just coming off a pretty nasty cold I wasn't running for speed or anything.  Just to burn some calories and use up some pent up energy.  So Jacob joined me and ran about 1.25 miles on Saturday without stopping!

He asked if he could run a 5K race soon, so on Saturday, right after we came back from the 1.25 miler, we registered for a 5K on December 3rd right here in Navarre.  It's a Jingle Bell 5K and registered runners will not only receive a t-shirt, but also a set of jingle bells to ring while running!  We can't wait!

Know what else is cool?  This race course will be designed with "Shortcuts to Grandma's House" so the younger ones can go back early.

Today I took him out for 1.5 miles.  I keep alongside of him and he can watch my Nike+ distance ticking on my iPhone strapped to my arm.  HE LOVES THIS!  For those who know Jacob, you know he's a numbers/data kind of guy!

I am so incredibly proud to have this goal with Jacob -- to run a race together!

That is awesome! You guys will have so much fun making memories as you run together. I always enjoy my walks with Daniel. Although, I know he would prefer I was a runner. :)
