I just got this in the mail from the fun run I did with my family last Thanksgiving. Its called The Give 'N Gobble and it raises money and food for the local food bank. I love supporting this run, and we had a terrific time doing it together as a family. But I just couldn't help but laugh at this photo.
I want to believe I was looking for my daughter or friend and not scoping out the "competition" coming from behind. I have to remind myself to not be competitive during these true "FUN" runs. I'm such a dork. I mean seriously.
This was the other photo they sent. I LOVE this one! Isn't my daughter adorable? And athletic? And wonderful in every way? Can't you just tell all that from the photo? Look at that kick! :)
As a little side note... I was just interviewed by Sarah Bowen-Shea who is writing a piece for the New York Times about kids and triathlons. I got to tell her all about the awesome experience we had last fall as a family while participating in the family triathlon that Kelly put together with our local YMCA. I can't wait to share it with you when it comes out! I'll let you know when I see it.
And as long as I'm posting... (It has been a while) ... I am just getting over a bout of pneumonia and getting back to running after a two week break. What a rotten experience that little sickness was! I found myself in the ER one night with a fever of 106.1. I felt as if I was on death's door. Have any of you ever had to recover from it and get back into a training program? I'm a bit nervous about what my lungs will tell me tomorrow on my first run back. Wish me luck!
