“I’m a runner.” my youngest announces to everyone at the table. I had all I could do at that very moment, not to swipe the table clean and shock the family with a dance, but I had to play it cool.
Today she ran in her first official 5K placing 8th in her age division (20 and under) and running 43rd overall among over 300 participants.
“There’s over 200 runners,” I told her in nearly a whisper, not wanting to freak her out.
“No big deal. I’ve done that before.” she replied confidently. She led the crowd of runners up the hill. That girl has determination and is not afraid of hard work.
Go girl go! A mother couldn’t be prouder.
