I thought it was one of those clever personalized emails until I got a whole bunch of texts from people who got it too. How hilarious!
On the big day I felt really nervous and out of sorts but ready to try a race again. It felt so strange to get ready at 5 a.m. when it was still dark and I was thrilled that Maddy decided to come (I wouldn't have blamed her if she had wanted to stay in bed!) and Lu pulled off the small miracle it takes to leave a 2 month old princess and get out of the house!!
The T-shirts and tutus were so cute and it felt really great to be among 2,700 amazing pink ladies running to provide free mammograms within our community:) And to be back with Lu was really special - we took a million pictures just like the good old days!
And with Maddy too this time!!!
The weather couldn't have been more perfect and I managed to run (slowly) the whole way just like I had planned. We had beautiful medals at the end and I was super happy with my performance:)
But Maddy stole the show and managed to pull in a sub-40 minute 5K without trying or training! We were all really proud of ourselves and each other!
What an amazing day!!! Now I need to take my own advice (!) and "Stay Motivated" - it's going to be a great year!
