Run for Life
Our 2 mile run was this past Saturday. It poured the entire drive to WU. When we got there, it was still raining. We started lining up for the run and it stopped. The rain stayed away long enough for us to run almost the entire route. There where spots Gaby wanted to slow down, so we did. Then, we would look ahead and say, when we get to this point we'll run again. And we did. We finished our run right at 25 minutes. It wasn't about the time. I was overwhelmed that I was doing this run again, and I was doing it with Gaby. I admire this child more then I can ever say. I am proud to be her momma!
This race was a little bit of motivation to keep me on the road that I need to be going. This race marks a year of gaining back 15 pounds, being more free with my food choices, not caring as much if I make it to the gym, and "oh well" if it is only 3 bad days of eating poorly. It was a nice time to reflect on this past year and get it going again. I am running, I am running for my OWN life.
