Jogging with Grandpa
2009 Edition

Anthony went jogging with Grandpa a couple of times last year, finishing one lap around the lake the first time, and three laps the second time.

Yesterday Anthony said that he was going to run six laps with Grandpa today, and to encourage him I told him that if he could, I'd give him a toy on the first leg of our flight back to Kyoto tomorrow. (I already have the toy and had planned to give it to him... it's just that now he thinks he's earning it 🙂.)

It had finally let up after having rained all morning, and they went out, and I followed for a few pictures....

I went inside after three laps, but Anthony stayed running with Grandpa the whole time, though it turns out that Grandpa does only five laps at a time these days, so Anthony got away with five as well.

Anthony apparently kept some energy in reserve, because the first thing he told me when he came in was that he beat Grandpa. The first thing Grandpa said when he came in was that it would be rude to talk about winners or losers, as he winked at Anthony.
