Happy to report a bigger loss this week. But even more THRILLED to tell you that I ran a 5k fundraising run this morning with my daughter! For a long time I've wanted to be fit enough to enter a formal run, but i doubted if I'd ever do it. And time passed...
Then in May, my nine-year-old daughter ran the Manitoba Marathon Superrun with her class, and she was hooked on running. And I thought, "If my girl can do this, then I'm going to encourage it." So I committed to running with her in a run this fall. And today was the day....we did it!
We ran together, matching my grown-up legs to her pace. She talked the whole way! And I think she was one of the first kids to cross the finish line....we completed our run in 44 minutes....one minute faster than the goal we set out for ourselves. It was magic, and hard, and fun....and yes, there were tears in my eyes when we finished.
I can only feel grateful. What a great day!
