“Family mean no one gets left behind or forgotten.” ~David Ogden Stiers
I took the Fitbit off for a week. I wanted to let it run all the way out and start all over. I was pushing myself too hard with it. Suddenly, just reaching the 10,000 steps a day wasn’t enough. Once I hit 100,000 for a seven day total I felt like I needed to stay there and I was putting way too much pressure on myself. I finally put it back on today for the Color Run.
Today is Max’s 5th birthday. In order to celebrate a little differently, we ran the Color Run in Baltimore as a family. The kids had a blast and people seemed pretty impressed that they were running a lot of it, especially Ollie (the 3yo) and finished it without strollers, etc. Mike had a lot of fun too! We’re excited to do another one in the future. The best part was, even after half walking, half running, I wasn’t tired or sore at all. Not even after coming home and sitting for a while. I can really feel a difference my running has made and I couldn’t be happier to share my new love and hobby with my family.
