I am not a runner. Period. I am not trying to win first place. But I am an active person who wants to stress health and wellness for her children. I believe that is really what moves me. I want my kids to aspire to do more physically, to enjoy getting up and moving. I walked the half last year with a great group of lady friends and it was a blast. To walk 13.1 miles was no small feat. That is not a short distance. It was an amazing moment crossing the finish line with my dearest friends by my side.
This year my sister and I are run/walking it. My poor knee can only take about 3 miles at a time (plus I am getting over a terrible cold), so I will see what I can do. If nothing else, I got myself up early to do something amazing with my sister. My boys will be at the finish line and although they may not really understand what I did today, they will know that I always try to push myself a bit harder each and everyday...that they move me to get moving!!!
