Yesterday was a BIG day in the Alexander family. We started our day in downtown Birmingham where Jill ran the last mile of her Mercedes Kids Marathon. Over the past three months she ran 25 miles while training at home and at school. Yesterday she completed her marathon by running the last mile! Since she is only in the 1st grade I got to run with her. Let me tell you that she ran EVERY step without so much as breathing hard! To this asthmatic mother, I was elated by that fact!!! She ran her mile in about 10 minutes which is actually the pace I run. She promised me that when she is 16 she will run the Mercedes half-marathon with me. I am keeping my fingers crossed that she will pick up my love for running! What better running partner could a Mom have?
Getting ready to go! It was soooo cold, 35 degrees with 18 mph winds at 10:40 a.m.!!!
