First 5K

img_3078

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!!!
