And so it happened!
To tell you the truth – I have never expected it to move me as much as it did. Granted, I have a chronic “condition” called: “The-Eyes-On-A-Wet-Spot”, which means I don’t really have to have a serious reason to cry; I cry when I am happy, I cry when I’m sad, moved, touched or excited. But I am not talking tears at the moment. I’m talking about that deep, choking feeling you get sometimes…
Well, yesterday evening was one of those moments for me. My Husband was a runner and still can run fair distances with close to no effort (phew!), I started in September (posted few times my running story on this blog 😉 ) and the kiddos… well. My Son decided he wants to build up the strength, stamina and endurance as he wants to try to get to the cross country team. My Daughter… Well. She just did not want to be left out 😉 So we just pretty much started the c25k program…
Few months ago I signed us up for a free 20 minute running challenge hosted by the Running Room. I wasn’t sure if we all can make it, if we’ll be running or walking (walking was an option as well), but I just did. Yesterday I was asking the kids – are we running or walking? They said they wanted to try running. So we did… and Oh Boy did it feel good! I was talking the whole run, keeping my Daughter’s spirits up, telling her how strong she is and how proud I am of her, and coaching her to keep going! And there we were – all four of us, running!!!
It felt so good.
As in – we are family.
We are a TEAM. 🙂
