As soon as he gets the word I'm almost ready, he runs upstairs, and changes into his 'walking gear.' He's decided his colorful Nike 6.0 high-tops are now his walking shoes, the weather requires his "puffy coat," and he HAS to wear his "2nd place dream shorts." These are a pair of simple black Adidas shorts with white stripes, that are much like Prince Inventive's tennis shorts. His hero's shorts, though, are the opposite colors, white with black stripes, so a pair of those in his size are the "1st place dream shorts" and were near the top of his Christmas wish list this year. Funny the things that are important. He was so thrilled to find the black pair on a clearance rack at a local store last month. I didn't know how well spent that $12 was going to be!
I am not ready to wear shorts in our 38 degree weather, so my jeans and a coat will do, and my must-haves are my Reebok SimplyTone fitness shoes. They're so supportive, super comfortable, and if they do some extra toning as I walk, it's a great bonus.
We used to walk, side by side, the entire walk, but now Prince CuddleBunny runs ahead, maybe about 50 to 100 yards, depending on where we are on our walk, then runs in place or waits while I catch up. A couple of times during the walk, I will run to catch up, but the rest of the time, I just maintain my own brisk walking pace.
I have a difficult time disciplining myself to walk, so it's a tremendous help to have my little partner to push me out there. The prospect of walking is a lot more enjoyable with such pleasant and enthusiastic company.
