Mother's Day Run

Instead of a relaxing, sleep-in kind of morning, for Mother's Day, I dragged my family out to Yonge and Eglinton for 7:45 a.m. so that I could run a 10K -- my fifth in two and a half years.

It was an awesome race and I felt great from beginning to end and, being Mother's Day, my cheering squad came out in style -- making this mom feel very special.

They greeted me just 500 metres or so after the start line and then hopped in the car and met me 500 metres or so before the finish line, which I got to in 1:09:47 by the way, only 8 seconds slower than my personal best time. Maybe I wouldn't have been 8 seconds off if I hadn't slowed down to blow them both a kiss at the beginning. Ah hell, it was worth it!

Thanks Ryan, for standing on the side of the road with the kids, to once again watch thousands of people run by just to catch a glimpse of me for 10 seconds. You three made this mom feel very special on Mother's Day.
