On your Mark, get set, GO!

Mason and I ran in a local 5K that my work co-sponsored this past weekend. When I told Mason about the event and the kid's run before the 5K he quickly told me he wanted to do the big race with me! Now I had intended to run/walk the event with coworkers since it has been quite a while since I have done that kind of running. Mason made me step it up a notch since I knew he wanted to run the entire race and I would not want him so far ahead of me that I could not see him. Luckily, my friend and coworker April is in better shape than me and kept up with Mason about a minute ahead of me. I was so proud of my boy. He loved running that race and wants to do many more. I guess this momma will have to get her rear in gear to keep up with his pace. If that is not motivation to stay in shape, I don't know what is! He wants to go run tonight to continue his training...too cute. I'm so thrilled to have this be something for the two of us to do together. So I'm off to take these stiff legs out to run off the soreness!
