I said awhile ago that I was going to start doing things that make me happy, and focus on myself again. With the Bgirl, I just crossed an item off my bucket list and got one step closer to one of the biggest things on my life list. Last weekend, we completed a 5K. It was a fun run, with lots of dye being splattered as we went, and we did the race with several friends which made it a really great time. I loved accomplishing something so big with my kid there to do it with me. In this quest to lose weight and get healthier, she has been my biggest cheerleader and a huge support system to me, and she will never know how much that has meant to me. We even have our next race planned for just a couple of weeks from now!!
I admit that my body really revolted the day after Run or Dye, so I know in my head that I may never reach my goal of a Disney half marathon, but I will – I WILL!! – complete a Disney race in the next two years. And if possible I would love to do it with my girl beside me, I think that is a memory we will always have to cherish.
