Results of the 10K Sun Run for Me and Daughter

Sunday, April 21, 2013

Well we ran our 10K race today at the insistence of the family. Even with my Mom gravely ill she wanted us to go today. She told my nephew to play his football game yesterday too.

My daughter ran for the 1st time this year and completed 10K in 1hr 6 min 6 sec, and placed 18680/38834 overall and 412/1319 in her age group. I finished my 2nd 10K in 1hr 3 min 27 sec, and placed 16229/38834 overall and 477/2216 in my age group. Overall pretty darned proud of both of us.

I did run this one for my Mom. To keep me going I just kept telling myself "Mom hasn't given up yet, so neither can you."

We had a family party for my Mom today as well. We had her wheeled in to the floor lounge so all 24 of us could visit with her and she could see everyone. This was her request and we have honoured it for her, I have a feeling that now that everyone has been up to see her and have one more get together with her I think she will be at peace with how the family is now and be willing to let go when the time comes. We all went to her room in small groups after she decided she was done visiting and said goodbye. She was very consious to tell each of us goodbye and "I love you" so today was rather bittersweet.

    I am very proud of you, your daughter and your family. Your mother seems like a very special person wanting your lives to go on. I am sure that hearing about what you are doing is special to her.

    Sounds like a good if bittersweet visit. I'm glad everyone could be there.
