She Runs

Up until last week, I hadn't considered Hallie to be all that athletic. Though she played two seasons of soccer, Hallie cared so little about actually participating that it was impossible to tell whether or not she would follow in my shoes as a soccer player. And while she takes gymnastics and dance lessons now, it's still too early to know if Hallie will excel at either one.

I do know, however, that Hallie doesn't love to physically "push" herself, which, while to be expected considering her age, doesn't necessarily bode well for a future as a competitive athlete.

But then I caught a glimpse of her running - and I mean really running - when she thought no one was looking. She ran a third of a mile, without stopping and in flip flops, like this:

Perhaps her sport will be running...yet another example of how she takes after neither one of her parents.

Love it. maybe this is her calling. Not sure Lily will follow suit-she looks more like Phoebe when she runs :)
