I’m linking up again this month with Amanda at The Lady Okie and Becka at Sunshine To The Square Inch for their Runner’s Tell All monthly link-up. If you remember, I’ve previously written My Running Story In 250 Words and Favorite Running Gear And Products as part of their link-up. This month their cue was to write about your favorite or proudest running moment.
Coming up with my proudest running moment was very easy for me; well, actually two moments immediately popped into my head. Since I’m only supposed to write about one, I’ll talk about it a little more, but I really do want to mention my other proud moment.
Last summer our oldest son Joseph decided he wanted to run an ultramarathon, but due to a busy fall schedule he didn’t want to have to train through the fall. I suggested organizing our very own ultramarathon, and The Crusiers’ 45-Mile Ultramarathon was born! Joseph would be the only runner planning to run the entire length of the W&OD Trail; however, we would have Cruisers placed along the trail so that he always had a running buddy accompanying him.
At the end of a very hot and long day in July, Joseph crossed the finish line with his girlfriend (soon to be fiancé ) Julie, our family friend Beth, Bill, and me.
No parents have ever been happier than Bill and I were when we ran across the finish line with Joseph.
So there you have it, two of my proudest running moments…
- What have you done that you didn’t think possible?
- What’s your proudest running or athletic moment?
- What’s your most memorable running or athletic moment?
