Well, I have to give you an update on my 5K experience. I learned that being in the 40 and older category has its benefits! I have no idea how many women in my age group ran---it could have been 3, it could have been 300 (that's the one I'm going with). But to my great amazement, I won second place! Who knew? My good friend and neighbor took the first place spot, (you rock, Susan!) and we had a fun and encouraging run after some initial, friendly trash-talking.
And my little guy? He left me in the dust as I knew he would, and he took 3rd place in his division. He was thrilled.
So, my cramming pulled through for me, and my kiddo and I had a great and memorable experience together. As he received his medal, it warmed my heart to see him achieve a goal that he had set. And then to hear him cheering so loudly for me when I received mine, was icing on the cake. We made a great team. I think I might have running fever. But then again... maybe not. We'll see how I feel next week!
