Tips on Scootercise

Brief description of “Scootercise”:  Exercise that occurs while chasing a toddler or older child who is riding on a scooter. (My first day of scootercise occured on August 15, 2008, for a full account go to my website and click on that blog and the entry titled Scootercise.) 

1) Wear a good pair of shoes, preferably running sneakers. This is not the time to worry about fashion!

2) Bring water or know where the water fountains are located; it’s hard work chasing a scooter and the driver of the scooter will also get thirsty, eventually.

3) Be prepared to yell: “Stop,” “Slow down,” and “Wait for your Mama” are a few phrases that I use and they sometimes work.

4) Choose a path without many roadway intersections: a bike path, a running path, or a park are good locations.

5) Be prepared for bumps in the road or path: bring bandaids.

6) Remember to have fun, even when you are carrying a tired child and a scooter!
