I am staying with my parents right now and my mom and I left in the morning last weekend to go shopping. We're driving away from the house and she says "oh there's Honza running with his son." The neighbor runs by, in a regular tee, cargo shorts with his kid on his shoulders. Dude runs EIGHT MILES A DAY with his 4-year-old son ON HIS SHOULDERS. His shoulders! It was one of the wackiest things I've ever seen. I also had never heard of the X Alps, which he competes in every year, apparently.
Anyhow, I was amazed and felt exceptionally lazy as I probably couldn't run a quarter of a mile, nevermind with a 30 pound child on my shoulders.
