Training, Racing and Prom | Mommy and Me Monday | 690th ed


Between all of these training plans, sometimes it feels like it’s all we do around here. My runs, rides and weights, the kids runs, races. I don’t sit down often, but even when I do, I get restless.

Monday, E and B had a run to do. I had already done my own training and knew I didn’t have another run in me. Bicycle to the rescue. I rode, they ran.

(Grandma, if you are reading, this is the same bike from PALM…Pedal Across Lower Michigan from when I was my girls’ age)

Turns out, it’s pretty hard to bike with them running. At least on a narrow sidewalk next to a busy road. Look at E off in the distance. She was done with us!

But, those runs paid off! E had a HUGE 1600m PR this weekend! And a PR for her 800m run!

N also had a PR in her 800m and got a medal in the 4x800m and her first 4x400m races.

It was a very exciting race day for them and their entire team! Definitely a proud mom and proud coach moment.

B came for the entire race, too and got to hang out with the other in-training kiddos and one parent even took her on her and her daughter’s run. So happy to have other families willing to help out.

Why did B come to the race? Because the oldest was getting ready for prom and Mr. Serious was driving. We figured the teens didn’t want a 9 year old along for the ride.

Since I wasn’t there, we had a little Facetime to see her all ready and a little reminder of all the things a mom will remind their kiddo!

Another thankful for parents…the oldest kiddos boyfriend’s mom is a photographer so she got so many amazing shots.

I swear she was just a baby yesterday!

It was definitely another eventful weekend. With the end of school coming so soon, this week and weekend will likely be another full and fast one!
