She may not be following in her mother's footsteps

A while back Mia participated in her very first Rocket Run at Oakdale.  
Notice her class 50 feet ahead of her....
Apparently she was the class leper that day.  Maybe it was those two barrettes she insisted on wearing in her hair.
Much to my dismay she was less than enthusiastic about the one-mile run.
Finally, after much weeping and gnashing of teeth I told her if she would finish the race with me with a good attitude she could get some ice cream afterwards.
That changed everything.
Bode was a champ and jumped right in there with the big kids and ran like the wind.
I may have to give up on my dream of Mia someday running with me every morning at 6 AM unless I plan to feed her ice cream for breakfast.
Don't put it past me.

Thanks for the class leper sentence. That made the post for me. Glad to see she came around by the end and the Bodester got in on the action. I still have today's visual of seeing him high tail it to the kitchen with no britches on. Makes me laugh.

I think denying myself ice cream is where I've gone wrong... I'm glad Mia made it!
