National Running Day

Between the Piriformis injury and stress overload, my running went down the drain!!  While I was at Adrianna's track practice today she asked me to run with her for her warm up.  I was winded. I felt SO out of shape. 5 year olds put me to shame.  BUT, as soon as she grabbed my hand I remembered I have always run for FUN.  I enjoy it, it relaxes me, it helps build my confidence.

I threw running out the window.

Tsk. Tsk.

I drove home after practice and replayed in my head all the words of encouragement I gave her for myself too...

"It takes time to build up your endurance."

"You just have to get back out there and try your best."

"If you need a break, TAKE it."

"You are strong, determined and CAPABLE."

I told her how proud I was of her that she kept pushing forward and didn't quit, even though I KNEW she did NOT want to do that last was HOT.... she said to me, "I didn't quit because Auditores don't quit!"

That's right my wise baby girl.....


I may NOT be at the top of my game, but I celebrated National Running Day running two miles *with* my girl and I feel GREAT!  Time to *officially* MOVE FORWARD!!!
