Well - my boys are all runners. Where they got this gene I will never know, as I can swim, ride horses, and keep the couch from any levitation.... however.... my children think it would be really "cool" to run a 5K together. And somehow they are using their Jedi Mind Powers to make me think it would be fun.....
Last year, after the passing of my cousin and her girls, there was a 5K planned, and they added to it - to be a part of their Memorial... so that is the 5K we are working towards ...slowly.
My children helped me download a Couch to 5K app - and I am on day 6... ugh... double ugh... and yesterday they made me run hills - and today we are going to gently jog around the pit ( the pit being about 1 mile...I don't see this as gentle people!!)
But to top it off - I have always, always, okay maybe for year, wanted to try kickboxing... so guess what two of my boys and I did Wednesday???? Kickboxing class at a real kickboxing gym, with a real professional kickboxer.... did I mention that they take no mercy?
Just kidding, our coach was AWESOME and he was totally cool, and he was almost my best friend because he thought I was the older sister to my kids, but then he made me sweat, so that whole Best Friend thing? Didn't happen...
I can totally tell you that there are muscles, or joints, or , lets be serious here - pain, where I did not think it could exist!! It's not that bad, but I can feel it ;-)
So if you see any of these three - be sure to tell them that I deserve a LOT of chocolate okay?
And if you see this little dog with his tongue hanging out... don't look too much farther - he and I are hiding... so Shhhh.... be vewy verwy quiet please!
