Abby and I ran the Tiger Trot 5k in Loveland yesterday afternoon. She had told me about it a week ago and wanted to run together. I told her she would need to train. So we did. Twice. And I kept having to tell her to Slow Down, and Pace Herself.
The starting line! There were a lot of die-hard runners running with their kids. The guy beside me in the yellow shirt just ran the Boston Marathon and had already ran 8 miles on his lunch break! We had the option to compete separately or combine our times as parent/child, which is what we did.
Carl brought the other kids along to cheer for us and take pictures :) I don't have my official time back yet, but I know I beat my race time from my first 5k :) And I know that Abby beat me! 3.1 miles later, here is Abby crossing the finish and me coming along in the background. She did AWESOME! It was fun running a race with my favorite 9 yr. old over Mother's Day weekend!
and finally, a little motivation...
