While we have all heard the expression “keeping up with the Joneses,” in my life it has extra special meaning. This is because my future daughter-in-law (and her parents are the Jones family). Earlier this week I was proud, inspired and feeling a bit of pressure when Kyle let me know that he and Nicole have registered for the Disney half marathon in February. This morning, as I went to wish Nicole’s mom, LeeAnn, a happy birthday, I learned that she just signed up for half-marathon training with a race in October and visions of the doing the Disney half with the kids. I can only imagine how special this would be to do together, so I’ll definitely be continuing to work on my running this summer. Yesterday, I was happy to get in 1.5 miles between my classes and wondered how anyone could do another 11.6…..But as the saying goes, it’s one day (or one step…or one mile…) at a time.
Off to open the gym and sub for Ellen at 10. Make it a great day and remember to consider a meatless meal or two on this Vegan (Feast) Thursday. Last but definitely not least, have a wonderful birthday LeeAnn! Can’t wait to do more celebrating with you, Gary and OUR families!!!!
