Tomorrow my summer running/exercise coach will be leaving me. It will be a sad day for me, but I know she is looking forward to it.
You see, my coach is my 20 year old daughter who returns to college tomorrow afternoon. She is on the cross-country team and all athletes return a week early. I'm so used to having her home for the summer especially this summer as she has coached my exercise program and progress toward being a runner and not a couch potato!
No, her college is not far away and yes I do attend all cross-country meets within driving distance! But it's not the same as going to races or workouts together. It's been really fun, even though I can't keep up with her and probably never will!
Yes, we will be doing our half marathon and a couple of training races together. I'm just having Mom withdrawal and will be missing my daughter, my coach and my friend, Mary Kate.
