Today our family went out to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and participated in an annual “Walk for the Cure”. It was a 5K walk which doesn’t sound like much except I literally haven’t gotten off my butt and exercised in a very long time.
It was a fun day for the family. They had several activities for the kids… blow up slides, arts and crafts, and oh goodness hair paint! I knew I wasn’t going to get out of letting the boys get their hair painted a crazy color so I decided to not even try and fight it.
Noah decided to participate in the walk with me which made me very proud. John Parker is too young still to be trusted to walk 3 miles without asking to be carried a half mile in so he stayed and continued playing with his dad.
I’ll admit I was a bit surprised when we got to the half mile mark. I was SURE we had gone at least a mile and half already! Boy, I could really tell how out of shape I am starting to get by not being more active this year. By the time we got to the finish line I was in the groove though. Noah was also very proud of himself for finishing. He got ahead of me once and very sweetly too a break on the curb to wait for me.
I was very proud to watch Noah cross the finish line.
This was a lot of fun. The next walk is the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer walk in October. I think we are going to do that one too. Man I hope I’m not too sore tomorrow. I have a feeling I’m going to have painful legs tomorrow. Oh well… it was worth it.
