But I digress. This post is about my mom and how she instilled her love of running in me! So to this day, I run, and I love it. I often think of my mom and what a pioneer she was. I think of her every time I run. Today is Mother's Day, and I'm going to do something that we both love(d) best ~ run.
|Stefan & me with Jim Fixx. Our mom was|
all starry-eyed. "There he is! Let's go get your picture
with him!" She didn't get her picture taken with him... we
were like, "What?" OK, Mom!" (eye-roll). Makes me laugh
thinking back on it.
