Best running partner ever.

My 8 (almost 9) year old niece.
After our morning outing of extreme outlet mall shopping (my family happens to be professionals. They have it down to a science, seriously), I had a few extra hours before we go to the Nutcracker (which I've never been to) so I decided to go for a run. My niece decided to join me on her bike and played tour guide because I didn't know how to get to the levee from our street. It would've been a pretty run, but today was the first time you needed a jacket. Boo.
 On the way up.

 On top. That's Lake Ponchartrain. The same one that broke the levee during Katrina. We live in a different area, though. Fun fact: The houses closer to the levee on my street did not flood and those farther down the street did. Weird, right? Mine did not.

On the road on the other side.

It was a good run. I only did yoga once after my b2b run this weekend, so I knew I had to run. I think I'm going to try to do another b2b run tomorrow and Christmas morning. .  but we will see. 

Anyway, the reason why my most awesome niece was the best running partner ever? She talks. a lot. I didn't even notice the miles going by because I was listening to her. What she was talking about? I have no idea but it helped me get through it. She's pretty awesome. 
(Don't worry, PIC, you could never be replaced!)


  1. I never talk because I run alone - but I feel like during DL 1/2 we all never stopped talking. I have a feeling our 13.1 miles with Fred are going to fly by!!

  2. Oh, most definitely! There will be so much to see and talk about!
