My Cheerleader Mother

May 13 - My mom was there for almost 20 years of competitive sports. Hours were spent sitting in the stands, chauffeuring me from one sport to the next, laundering dirty practice jerseys and uniforms, selling baked goods and washing cars, traveling endless miles to make it to games and tournaments and handing out hugs and kisses for countless injuries.

When I began running, it was no different.   

She was there to cheer for me at my very first 5K race.

She continues to be there to celebrate my successes.

Thanks mom! Happy Mother's Day!

How will you celebrate Mother's Day?
Living 900 miles away means that I will be Skyping today!
