My son's PR

Sunday, April 15, 2012

I'm so proud of my son! He finally got his PR under 40 minutes for his 5k. It was a great moment watching him cross the finish line at 38 minutes. I got a new PR, too, by a few seconds, missing getting into the 26 minute zone by 15 seconds, the time it took me to stop and tie my shoe around mile 2.5. But none of that mattered because I was grinning ear-to-ear when my son met his goal!

My whole family ran today, and I'm proud of them all. The fiancé is determined to beat me and knocked three minutes off his previously best time. I'm proud of him, but, dang, I don't want him to catch me. My daughter, aka Miss I Don't Have to Train Because I'm that Good, also ran. While she was still a full 6 minutes ahead of her brother, she's decided to train because she doesn't want him to beat her. :-) Yay for me because it gets her exercising!

We all got so revved up about running, we looked up pics of the 5k we're running at Disney in less than a month. None of can wait; I'm not even sure if I'm going to be able to keep the surprises I have planned for the kids a secret for the next two weeks. Just two weeks.

So, all in all, a good day exercise wise. We have another 5k next week although my daughter isn't running because she has cheer tryouts. I think I've convinced my mom to come out and watch, to cheer my son on. I'm hoping for another great weekend then as well. That's all for now, but I'll keep you posted. Thanks for cheering me on. And best of luck on your Spark plan!
