New inspiration!

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

My 12 year old daughter recently joined the cross country team at school. The girl who complains about her legs hurting after a day at the zoo. The girl who complains about being tired during a hike in the woods.

This girl ran a 2 mile race yesterday. She didn't win - but she finished the race! I'm so proud of her. I had tears in my eyes as she passed me on the final leg to the finish line. My girl RAN! (yes she walked a bit) but still she ran!

As I headed out for my wog (walk/jog) this morning I thought of her and her pushing herself to finish even though she was tired. I ran longer during my jog sprints and faster. Yes, I still walked but the jogging part was much longer than it has been in the past. I did 2 miles in 30 minutes. No, I'm not breaking any records. But like my daughter, I ran and I finished!
