So I’ve got some exciting news for you……
Colin is catching the running bug 😀 (I know!!!) the first sign happened when he actually agreed to even sign up for ATB 30k….
That’s when I knew that the Terry Fox face of happiness was no lie
Then, while I was working on last Saturday I came home and there was treadmill evidence that he’d been on it….
……and he told me he ran 3.48 miles in 33 mins!
* ps: I told everyone to add him to DM but he is only accepting friend requests from people he knows in real life. BOOOOO!
THEN last night while we were eating all of Logan’s candy he asked me what he should run next and if I could make him a training plan (!!) 😀 YAY!!!!!!!!!
exciting isn’t it?!
but it gets even better!!!!
Yesterday my sister called telling me her and 2 of her co-workers were signing up for the Santa Shuffle in Guelph and asked if Lyndsey, Colin and I wanted to sign up too – family race fee = $60/family, so that’s only $10 each. SCORE!
I thought Colin would shoot me down but lo and behold he was all for it!!!!!
So now we will spend the next few weeks training for Colin’s first official 5k race in over 20 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! <—– I know this will seal the running love deal
* FYI the fact that Colin is taking blog tready pics for me is FACT enough that he loves running YAY!
My current 5k PR is 25:42 (on a possibly mis-measured course) so I can’t wait to try for a sub- 25! and gain some redemption…..plus, I won’t have Rex to pace me so it should be feasible I know Colin is planning on smoking my trash….
it’s on! (photo from this post)
