FIRST TRAIL RUN!!
And not only that, it was her first run with the SOLE SISTERS!!
She was very excited. She even "popped" right out of bed when it was time to get rolling! We would meet Michele and Kris at the trail head at 6:00 AM (The early time is due to the triple digit heat wave we are in). Since we live a ways from the trail that meant a very early morning.
We headed to the trails at Veteran's Cemetery because it has the least intense hills! Kris loved that she was with us because it meant I would go slower! Little does Kris realize....my 12 year old is faster than me! Kris also noticed her bright new running shoes. "Those will not be new for long! When we are done they will be gross and dirty like mine!"
We ran Junkyard, Rabbit Run, Twisted Sister and D's Chaos. She loved it so much."MOM can we run these trails everyday?" That made me swell with pride! But alas we cannot because the cost in gas would bankrupt me. LOL
Se was so excited to see some of the things I have blogged about and took pictures of for herself! She even asked if we would see the Christmas tree that I had told her about in December.
|THE CHRISTMAS TREE! IT STILL HAD 3 ORNAMENTS ON IT!!|
|SHE LOVED SEEING THE BIKE RAMPS!|
(Michele would not get up on it with her and Kris was afraid to get down)
|STOP TO TAKE IN THE VIEW|
Kris declares, "This is my kinda girl!!"
|A FORCED SELFIE!|
During the run she kept saying that she was craving a smoothie. I told her that Michele would have baby Cokes at the end of the run for us. Whoops, Michele did NOT have baby Cokes for us. So we went in search of a smoothie!!
I am beyond thrilled to have my little girl share my love of running! With her oldest brother in Panama I have been missing someone to share my running adventures with! Her half-marathon is a month away....Can't Wait!!
