My son's school does a 5K and Fun Run as a fundraiser each year, and I tried to talk my 9 year old into doing the 2 mile or 1 mile, but he wanted to tackle the 5K again. He totally killed it. sub 30 minute 5K on a cross country course with a few rolling hills. I didn't see him after about a mile. I was sucking wind, had to walk-run-walk-run the whole way, and finished about 7 minutes behind him. He was the first kid from his school to finish. I told him afterwards that I was proud of him and that it was official---he was faster than me now.
Yesterday was a gut check and a reminder to me that I need to get out there again and run, even if it means I'll be starting over. Hopefully that means I'll be getting back in shape and blogging again soon.
