Our Amazing Daughter....

I know, everyone thinks their own kid is the best.  Well, I know mine are.  So today I'm gonna brag a bit about my daughter.

Not only is she a very kind, thoughtful woman, (who just happens to be beautiful as well), she takes her good health very seriously.  About a year and a half ago she decided she was going to run a half marathon.  Yep!  That's a whole 13 miles.  She started running, and set herself up on a training program.  During that time she ran a few 5Ks, but yesterday was the big day...
She lives about 90 miles north of New York City...
When I talked with her this evening she told me that she'd been running on the high school track and a "rails to trails" path in her area.  While it's very hilly where she lives the streets aren't safe to run on, so she'd been running on fairly level surfaces.  The route of the marathon had some hills...  but she did just fine.

Here she is...  at the finish...
I wish I'd been there to give her a big hug of congratulations!


Now,, seriously...
Does she look like a Grandmother to you?
She finished the race in 2 hours and 10 minutes...  (she'd set a goal of 2.5 hours).
Way to go, Donna!
Congratulations, I'm one proud Mama of my amazing daughter.

That's All For Today!

  2. Runners always blow me away. I can't do it. Cudos to your daughter for setting that goal and then doing it. That's pretty amazing. And she's a "Granny"?

  5. Well, you should be proud of her for what she accomplished, especially since she is a "granny". Are you going to join her in this sport in the future?

    Why does she have the two little dolls dressed in black on her shoulder? Looks like she was photo bombed. Just kidding, I realize they are people behind her, but it looked like they were standing on her shoulder.

    Have fun out there.

  12. Good on her. No I do not think she's a grandmother. You are kidding us there. I wish I could run. My knees wouldn't take it though. Does your daughter blog or is that just your hobby? Do you run or is that just her hobby?
