it’s mother’s day

Happy Mother’s Day!

To be honest, I haven’t been excited about Mother’s Day – at all.  I really felt I would be wallowing and wasn’t looking forward to all of the facebook posts talking about moms and how great they are.  But that hasn’t been the case.  Yesterday was the 25k and I did it in honor of my mom.

for the race

I was pretty nervous about this but it turned out to be just the thing I needed.  15.6 miles is some really good thinking time and it was nice to dedicate those miles to my mom.  It was also nice to call on her near the end when I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to finish.  I’ll write more about the race tomorrow.  In the meantime, here are a few pics…

one of my favorite pics

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there.  Hope you know how much you are loved!

    Although no one can replace – Mother’s Day can be also for those who acted like a Mother when you really needed it too :)

    I am glad you found some peace in your run. Congrats!

    Beautiful pix.
