Keep Running or I'll Sing . . . Loudly

My younger daughter had practice at 5:00 to 6:15; my older daughter from 6:15 to 7:30.  I could either spend two hours driving kids back & forth or spend three hours basically waiting at the gym.  The latter is less expensive--so I completed an errand during practice #1 and ran during practice #2.

To my surprise, my younger daughter wanted to run with me.  We ran an out-&-back 3-mile loop, so my daughter walked after ten minutes while I continued running.  I picked her up on the way back.  We were less than a quarter mile from the end when she wanted to walk (we were going slow and she wasn't breathing hard).  I told her if she stopped to walk that I was doing to sing and sing loudly.  You should have seen her amazing sprint to the end.  Now if only I can manipulate this technique with room cleaning . . .
