That wasn't my actual response when we first talked about participating in the kids' school's fun run, but when the alarm went off Saturday morning, I was questioning my sanity. We were up at the crack of dawn, and oh, it would've been nice to sleep in!
As we waited for the race to start, we were COLD! It was a gorgeous, brisk fall morning, just perfect for a run/walk around the neighborhood. Still, we got pretty chilly in the shade in the minutes before the starting gun was fired.
The kids made good time around the mile-long course, and I finished far from the end of the pack—SUCCESS! The last time we participated in the fun run, I was a little closer to the end, so I was happy to see plenty of walkers finish far behind me and my old, slow self!
After all that exercise, I took the kids to their favorite McDonalds. Nothing like a "healthy" breakfast to feed the athlete!
Even though it was hard to get out of bed, the run gave us a good excuse to get an early start on our busy weekend.
