Run Like a Girl




This weekend is my daughter's inaugural run. My daughter is the light of my life. The air that I breathe. The cheese to my cracker. The manic to my depressive. Er. Whatever.

I am incredibly excited to tell you that this very weekend her and I will be running the Red October 1 mile Kids Fun Run. It's a mere 1 mile but my daughter is only 6 years old and well...I haven't exactly been running very faithfully as of late. No worries though, I'm no quitter! I can't wait to slip on my running shoes and pound the pavement alongside my favorite person in the world.

I picture her and I gracefully running together...the picture of the perfect mother-daughter bond. Then I come back to reality and realize that I'll be a wheezing wreck and I'll have to beg my 6 year old to slow down for my geriatric butt.

Que sara sara...and all that junk.

How fun! (Well sort of, minus the running part...ha ha!) No really, that sounds like a great thing to be doing. Last year my oldest (then 8) and I went for a walk for the Make A Wish foundation. It was a great time for both of us and for a great cause! Good luck! (Not that you'll need luck!) I hope you have a ton of fun! :)
