Nobody cares if you're not a good dancer. Just get up and dance. The same holds true for racing. Whether first or last, we all cross that same finish line. Just get out there and run.

Running with Munchkin

Yesterday morning, I took Bella with me on a run... at least I had every intention to run. We started with a warm up walk, and started running. It looked like it was going to go well, and we would be able to get at least 2 miles in, that is until she saw a squirrel. It turned into a walk rather quickly because it was hard to focus on running when there was critters, and interesting leaves and shiny things to distract her. She's 6, wasn't really all that surprising. It was ok because we had fun regardless, and I am going to try again tomorrow. She really wants to run the 5K in February at her school, so we are going to work on it so we can run it together. The runstar app said we walked 1.2 miles, I told her that next time we are going to go for the full 2 miles even if we just walk it.

Then in the evening I headed to Groove. My running buddy (who from now on will be referred to as K) and my friend A were teaching. K&A make an awesome teaching team, they just have a great rapport on stage and it puts the class in a positive place. It was great to dance it out, but man my arms and legs were sore during the class from the workout the day before.

They have a 5k at their school? That's awesome. My 5 and 8 year olds have done 1 mile races, but can't run much further. My nephew is on a track team, and 5k is their top limit. They never let them run more than that... so for her to hit a 5k would be quite the big accomplishment! As if proud mama didn't already know that!!! ;-)

Guess what! I tried Zumba!! My DVDs arrived this weekend, so last night I did my first introductory dvd to learn the basics. It was fun! I'm glad you've talked about it and without even trying got me to try it. I can't wait to get home from work tonight and give it another go!

Lesley- Yes, there is a 5K circuit of all the local schools. It's really neat. They also have a 1k fun run, but she is bound and determined to do the 5K.

RR- I am so glad you are giving it a shot. The videos are awesome! I've possibly had a hand in another Zumba convert. LOL
