Speedwalking Rebels

Returning to camp even in an ancillary role triggers Pavlovian responses to everyday occurances.  Today, I saw some kids running past the camp office and reflexively yelled “slow down, please!”

Camper 1: We’ll never make it to the shooting sports meeting if we don’t run!
Camper 2: I have an idea.  Let’s powerwalk.  Keep one foot on the ground at all times.
Camper 1 (now feverishly pumping his arms like a New Years inspired housewife): You’re *inhale* a genius *inhale*.

The geriatric sports champions of tomorrow are at Ockanickon today!
