Marathon Girl

My mom blogger card will totally be revoked if I don’t mention that my older daughter ran her first marathon a few weeks ago along with several of her 3rd grade classmates.

And since I don’t scrapbook and turned that card in many years ago along with my fancy scissors and crop party supplies, I want to be sure to record this milestone.

Just to clarify, they did run 26 miles as part of this marathon but not all at once. We signed up for the ING Kids Rock marathon in downtown Nashville as part of her PE class at school. She ran 25 miles on her own at home and at school over the course of several weeks and then she ran the final mile at LP field downtown.

It was a big deal and I am big deal proud of her!

Next year little sister Miss A wants to sign up, too.

They don’t get this athletic ambition from me, that’s for sure.

Shopping ambition and good hair ambition?

Heck yeah.

    What a great idea! I love that they’re getting the kids involved with something bigger! Makes P.E. seem like less of a chore (I imagine).

    Way to go, Miss C! I just heard about this yesterday from another mom whose son did it, too. Very cool.

    She was so proud and all the kids get to wear their Marathon t-shirts and medals to school on Friday!

    It is very nice to be involved in marathon. She looked very athletic and excited to participate in the marathon. Although the third picture didn’t look very clear, I knew that everyone enjoyed running at that time.
