So today we were getting ready for church, and a conversation similar to the following takes place:
Joe: You can just drive to Church. I'm going to eat a little, and then it only takes like 5 minutes to walk there, so I'll meet up with you.
Britt: 5 minutes? Are you kidding me? It would take way longer than that!
Joe: No it wouldn't.
Britt: Yes it would!
And so on...
We paid close attention to the odometer on the way to Church; it's exactly one mile away. So during Sacrament Meeting, (yes we mostly paid attention) Joe decides he could run home in less than 15 minutes. I was highly skeptical.
This is Joe stretching before his big run.
This is Joe running through someone's yard.
Guess who walked through the door 14:59 later? In his church clothes and shoes? Having run through yards and small sidewalks and up hills? My hubby, who would go to great lengths to prove me wrong. I accepted my defeat gracefully, and willingly took my first Halo lesson tonight (Joe's "prize").
