A 5k with my daughter

This past Saturday, I ran a 5k with my 8-year-old daughter, Aspen. It was such an amazing experience that I can’t wait to do, again. I learned so much from those 31 minutes (which is flying for a tiny, 3’6″, (maybe) 4o lb little girl).  She inspired me in so many ways.

The two of us right before. 8 is great! She's 8 year's old; I'm 8 months prego!

Aspen after having run the entire 5k (without walking or stopping) in 31 minutes! Those little legs can move!

Here are two articles I wrote that were all about this 5k … yeah, it was that awesome, that I got two whole articles out of it! Crazy!

      Thanks! We kinda’ like her. I’m excited to see how she does as she gets older. Hopefully she can keep the spark going :).

    Awesome, way to foster that strong will, it can’t be taught! What a great experience, it’s always awesome to read your posts about an active family.
