Today Aunt K (my amazing step-sister) accomplished something HUGE. She ran her first marathon! We are all so proud of her. Aunt K is an absolute inspiration to us all and I’m so proud of her. Papa Mike (my step-dad) is also a pretty cool Dad! I already knew it but loved seeing it today in how he supported Aunt K.
My favorite moment of the day was when Aunt K turned a corner and L and I spotted her! L went running down the sidewalk to reach her. Then he ran as fast as he could alongside her on the sidewalk. It was such a sweet moment!
I can’t believe I’m even possibly considering getting back into running (okay, jogging)! However, it’s hard to not want to accomplish something this fantastic myself someday. I’m not sure a marathon is for me…but 13.1 miles is officially now something I’ve added to my “bucket list”. I just need to make the time to train (someday)!
Congratulations K! You did fantastic!
