Runstreak Day #99 - the little lessons...
10k in 55:40 according to my Garmin... yay! PB for me! Maybe just maybe I can crack that 55 minute mark sometime soon?
But the very best thing about running today was my littlest who did a Parkrun today... after having had a Parkrun disaster a couple of weeks ago when a big kid accidentally kicked him and he ended up dropping out after 1 lap in tears. Anyway, despite being nervous about it today he managed it! Afterwards he said 'I felt like crying but then I remembered what you said when you're running and finding it hard... you just find a way to keep on going... so I did too.' And he was dead proud of himself. And I was proud of him too! He has a tendency not to want to give things a second go if they don't work out the way he wants to - so the fact that he managed it was fab.
I run because it makes me happy. I run because I know that there's always something to learn. And because my children get to learn stuff that's important too.
Happy dancing and tea?
Don't mind if I do. :o))
