"They won't know why they run, they just will."
I've always kind of laughed it off, but last night it hit home for me. Buggie and Doodle had gotten a hold of a pack of dollar store post-it notes. There were large yellow ones in there and Buggie peeled one off and stuck it to her chest. She then looked at me and said "Look at me, Mommy. I'm run run running!" and then took off...running with her little blank yellow "race bib". (Pardon the low-light blackberry pics)
It wasn't long before Doodle needed one too.
They get it. And, in a few years, I may have a daughter (or two) to run with. Or perhaps to chase since I suspect they'll be faster than me... They won't have known a life that is lived any other way.
