Mothers Day

I hope all of you Mothers out there had a fabulous Mothers Day, yesterday. This year, mine was quite different from past Mothers Days celebrations. My husband, son and I  awoke at 6:00 am, and traveled 30 minutes into the big city to pick up up my daughter and my 11 year old granddaughter. All of us then proceeded to the Sport Chek Mothers Day Walk and Run! This year money was being raised for new neo-natal equipment for the hospital. We had registered for this event a few weeks ago, after one of my friends had invited us to join her team. It was a cool and rainy morning but we had so much fun! There were over 14.000 people that participated this year. One could register as a 5K or 10K runner, or a 5K walker...........we decided to go with the walking option, as we were charity run virgins! As the event started we took our positions near the back of the pack with the rest of the walkers (runners were lined up ahead of us), and then we were off! Let me tell you, I have never seen my husband walk so fast! My granddaughter and 13 year old son kept up with him and they soon disappeared into the vast crowd. My daughter and I were walking very briskly, and interspersed our walking with periods of jogging. MY husband, son and granddaughter finished in 40 minutes, and my daughter and I came in at 43 minutes. We were all really pleased with how we did. It was a great feeling, to do this with some of my family, and a great healthy way to celebrate Mothers Day. We have decided to do it again next year and make it an annual Mothers Day event for our family! Pin It
