For Momsie

It's much later right now than I would normally write my blog. (It's about 4pm on Monday). I really prefer to blog in the morning - that's when I'm more eloquent with the way of the words.

But anyway - here it is. In all its glory. My post about how proud I am of my Mom.

Yesterday, my Mom ran a half marathon. That's 21 kms. Yes... 21. We ran it together in preparation for the half marathon race I'll be running in 2 weeks (Mom will be on vacation - unfortunate scheduling conflict).

Anyway, since she can't be there for the run - this was her half. It was my 60 year-old mother's half marathon day. And she did amazing.

To tell you the truth - she did better than me! (I'm suffering from some leg issues which cause major pain). But that's no excuse. I don't want to take away at all from what my Ma accomplished yesterday or how amazing she did.

It just goes to show that when you put your mind to something - you can really do it. It doesn't matter how old you are. Or how much experience you have. Or what you've done before. Or what you'll do after. All that matters is that you set a goal and achieve it.

That's definitely what my Mom did. And I couldn't be prouder of her.

When I'm running the race in two weeks, it won't be the same without her, but I'll keep her in my head (and my heart). And I'll make it through with flying colours.

Just like she did yesterday.
