We decided to end the year trying something new and my 10 year old daughter came up with the perfect idea. She decided we should enter a 5K and run it for a good cause.
I was not too thrilled about the idea because it was 30 degrees outside, raining, and super early in the morning but being a mom we all have to make sacrifices and this was one I was willing to make.
We arrived 20 minutes early and geared up for the rain and cold weather. When the shot was finally fired and the run began I found myself immediately enjoying it. I forgot how competitive I can be and how much fun it was to run. I was my daughters cheerleader the entire way, and she never stopped! When she got out of breath she would slow down and walk at a fast pace until she caught her breathe and then she’d run again. I was very impressed with her! I may have also encouraged her to out run the other kids that were there 😂…. I did say I was competitive right?
Over all we had a great time. We also placed in the top 10 for both our age groups out of over 300 people so that’s exciting! This may become a new thing for us. I recommend this to any moms out there looking for a new activity to do with your child or to give to a good cause. There were children as young as 5 years old running, you can do it!!!
