Today was Riley’s 5K with Girls On the Run! We woke up at the crack of dawn and drove almost an hour to Akron for it.
It was at this point during her first 5K she became overwhelmed. With the crowd at the starting gate. This time around, she knew what to expect and it was all good. She knew it would be okay for her teammates to keep their own paces. She knew some friends would fly ahead of her, and some would be far behind. Just like in practice.
She was very focused!
Nothing was going to stop my girl.
Look at her go!
HT had to work today, so Little man waited with Riley’s friend’s dad while we ran. I look forward to the day Riley is waiting around, supportive of him for whatever makes his soul light up. We’ll be there buddy!
I love this shot. It was a misty morning. The determination in her body!
Here we are at the finish.
I love this girl so much.
It was nice we were able to have such a positive experience before I go sing the second solo of my life in a couple of hours. You know, since I’ll probably die.
At dress rehearsal yesterday our director said, “You sound good, but you look terrified.”
That about sums it up. At least the terrified part.
You’ve all been so good to me.
See you next lifetime.
