She rode a half mile. There was minor crying and complaining because this bike has a new feature her trike didn't have: turning the pedals backwards triggers the breaks. She had gotten used to doing a half turn backwards then going forward whenever she'd gotten stuck. This technique doesn't work with the new bike, so it was like learning a brand new skill for her.
After the first half mile, she decided to run. She made it almost a complete mile running. And she really ran with an occasional walk. She asked to ride the stroller with about 100 yards left in the mile. We made it a mile and a half! The question is: will Laura be a bicyclist like her Uncle Chris, or a runner like her Uncle Paul?
