Last night at dinner, the conversation turned to this morning’s race. I was explaining to the kids that as I had to be in Whistler super early, Uncle Pete was coming over to make pancakes and turn on cartoons. After a few seconds of pondering, Will says: “Mum, how come you never bring home any trophies from your races?”
“Well, it’s because I don’t win, sweets.”
To which he and Rory concur that “Mum, all you have to do is run faster, ‘kay?”
Thanks, mini-coaches. I’ll bear that in mind next time I enter a half-marathon with little to no real training. Moving on!
The goals for this weekend’s race were simple:
- Make it to the start line.
- If I accomplish “1”, make it to the finish line.
- Enjoy wearing matching shirts. People were so stoked to cheer for Team Red!
- Keep pace with Yenny and Lizzie.
