This is a picture of Maddison and Amanda from the Mother's Day 5K 2011. Amanda ran the 5K, and Maddie and I walked. Maddie wasn't sure what a 5K was, and about 5 minutes into it asked "are we about done?" She finished the race with me (we walked), but it was a struggle for her (she fell and hurt her knee, which didn't help!). So, this year, I decided to not particpate in the race and give it a try in another year or so. However, Maddie called me last night and asked me to join her in the race. No way I could turn that down. She apparantly remembered the race and enjoyed it enough to want to do it again. So in a little bit, I am going to make my way to the race and see what happens. What a nice way to start Mother's Day. The race raises money and awareness for breast cancer prevention, which is a cause near and dear to my heart. Wish us luck!
Happy Mother's Day to all the mother's out there.
