My 16 year old son told me his fondest memory of me from his childhood was when I trained and ran the Disney Half Marathon in 2009. THAT was the first time….the first step really, into my journey.
It’s amazing what your kids will notice. What I remember is mommy running for 4 months. Running when she had never did before. Running in the snow, the rain, the cold….and not giving up. It was the first time I didn’t give up on myself.
