We all exercise (and neglect exercising) for different reasons. We each run, go to Zumba, practice yoga, head to Barre class, hop on our bicycles (or neglect to run, go to Zumba, practice… ) because of what our bodies and our minds need in every single right now that we experience. Health, strength, fun, peace of mind, competition, and being a good role model for ankle-biters all come to mind.
The Kidling, however, is motivated by less common externalities. Whilst running around the house the other day she stopped momentarily to declare, “I practice running fast so if I ever see a Ornithomimus that’s still alive, I’ll be faster than the alive Ornithomimus.”
