A year ago this past April our daughter Donna, who lives in the Hudson Valley of New York, began running. She had a goal... she wanted to run a marathon. Since that time she has run several 5K's and recently ran a half marathon (13 miles).
Our granddaughter, Heather, and Heather's daughter, Evie live at home, so Evie is very much involved in everything that happens. She watched her Grandma (our daughter) run those 5K's... and sometimes she'd go to the running track when Donna was training.
She told Donna that she wanted to run a marathon.
Evie is only 3 years old, but she's a happy, healthy kid and knows her own mind. Last weekend the town where they live had a running event. There were several different kinds of races a person could enter.
Evie ran the half mile event.
She finished.... she had earned her medal!
That's Evie receiving her medal. That's our daughter Donna on the right. She's one proud grandmother, and very rightly so.
I wish I'd been there to cheer them on.
Way to Go, Evie and Donna!
That's All For Today!
