Braggin' On


When I've had days I lament do I want to do the dishes, this girl was out at 4am running.  Days I didn't want to run to the grocery store, this girl was out for a run after putting three kids to bed.  Practice, training, eating right and thru it all going to college for new degrees, a new job (because of those degrees), raising three kids - I'm tired, BUT proud. 

This is my daughter - and two of her munchkins ready to high five her at the finish line.


All those marathons and yesterday's qualified my baby girl to be elligible for the 2018 Boston Marathon.  I never knew, but at 17 she dreamed this - wanted it - and 17 years later, has her dream fullfilled.

Now I better be ready to cheer her at the finish line in Boston in 2018.

Love Ya Sweetie - and SO PROUD!!
