Another Race - Doing it Right

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Last night I ran a 4.8km race and got even faster! Not by much which doesn't matter because every second counts. And - even better - MUCH MUCH MUCH better is that my husband did the 4.8km with his inlines and BOTH kids were there.

See that, people?!? My kids are learning what a healthy lifestyle looks like, smells like, feels like. I'm getting healthy and strong and my kiddos are getting two great role models.

When I realized that yesterday - that this is beyond just me having fun with my kids - that this is also about showing them through how we life, how THEY can live. So I updated my goal board.

Another race. And I'm doing it right.

And, yeah, I got down to 169.0. Which is great. Just not as great as role modeling for the kiddos.

    Working my way back through your blogs. As a long time runner myself, may I say that you have the right attitude. Yes, it's great and rewarding to get faster, but having fun and healthy living as a family is a reward in itself.
Go for it!
