Amazing Inspiration!

On Saturday morning we got up early and gathered in Seattle’s Gas Work’s Park to witness the culmination of a dream, the checking off of a bucket list item for two of “our kids” Becca and Joel. After training for months, Becca and Joel ran a ½ marathon. Knowing what this meant to them, I was overwhelmed by emotion as Becca rounded the corner. Tears streaming down my face I cheered and screamed “YOU’RE A ROCK STAR!!!” Joel came in shortly behind her and finished with a powerful sprint. I was SO inspired by their grit(Becca ran the whole 13.1 miles…beating her previous straight run distance by more than double.) I couldn’t be prouder of you! I love you guys!!! Thank you Becca and Joel for teaching me what it means to set a goal and make it happen! And now…they are moving on to the next goal on the list! J.

  1. Thanks Jeanne. :) It was pretty much a first for me, setting such a big goal and sticking to it until it was finished! Its a great feeling! And it wouldn't of been the same had all the family not come out to celebrate with us crossing the finish line. :) I love you!!
