I went running with Pauline and Derek today… WHEW! Boy, I have a LOT of work to do!!!
First, I was certain I was having a heart attack… So I stopped. Then, I started again. A bit more heart attack. Then, I took off like a bullet and said “bye bye babe!” Buahahahaha! YEAH RIGHT!! That lasted all of 20 yards and I was DONE!!! I ended up making the whole 1 3/4 miles, but keep in I need to double that and RUN it!
Hard work and dedication, right??!? I have to admit I am having a hard time believing that I will ever be able to run anything CLOSE to the whole thing, but I will TRY and do my best!! Not just for me, but for my babies, too!
The last quarter mile Derek took off with Cody… I promised I would follow closely behind. 🙂 When I started running again Derek Jr. said, “MOM! We have to catch Daddy! He is teeny tiny!” I said, “Buddy, do you see how fast Daddy’s feet are moving?? I will never be able to catch him!” He said to me…”YES YOU CAN MOMMY!! Run faster!!!” Each time I said couldn’t, he said, “YES YOU CAN!” So, I stopped saying I couldn’t, naturally…
How many times has Derek, Jr. said to me that he couldn’t do something and I replied with “yes you can buddy…never say you can’t”?? Big wake up call today. Even if I don’t really think it’s possible, I must TRY!
All we can do is…TRY! As long as we give it all we’ve got, and as long as we complete what we start, we win the race! I will run this race. I will take my little cheerleader with me. I will be better for it and so will he. It’s not about winning; it’s about working hard, helping each other, and having FUN!!
