9.5 solo miles plus 1 mile w/ dog and daughter

Yesterday I did 9.5 miles on my own.  The day was made for running!  It was in the 60s and I had on a yellow tank top.  I felt like I blended in with the forsythia along the path.

When I got back to the house I picked up my youngest and the dog and headed back out for a cool down mile.  The dog was so cute.  She kept checking on my daughter.  Maybe she wanted to make sure she was okay or she just wanted to know why she was running with us.

We are planning on doing a Girls on the Run 5K in June, my youngest and I so she is going to try and get in a little running with her mom and the dog.  Sounds like a plan to me.  Her longest race so far is the Kids mile at Disney during Princess race weekend.  So this is a step up in her racing career!


  1. This is awesome I am not a runner but running a 5k is on my bucket list. I would love to complete it by next year. I would love to have my daughters run with me but they might need to get a little older. I hear Disney offers 5ks during their races is that true?

  2. At this years Princess race weekend I ran the 1/2 solo, the 5K with my oldest (middle school), and the 1 mile kids race with my youngest (elementary school). The 5K fun runs and the kids mile are both fantastic. The 5Ks are not timed. You can take as long as you want and stop to take photos with the characters along the way! Some people complain that it is expensive, but we have such a fantastic time!
