This Christmas I participated in a gift exchange with other runner organized by Jill of "Run with Jill". My secret santa gift arrived just as we were walking out the door for our holiday travels. I didn't have a chance to check it out until last night. My secret santa, Julie, sent me two towels from Cool Gym Towels.
The first one reads: Test your limits. The second one (and my favorite) can be read above. It is a challenge and an honor to be a mom. The towel reminds me that every step I take and race I run is setting an example for my daughter. I need to healthy and happy so that she can be too. I love that she asks me about running and every time I have on a race t-shirt she asks about a marathon. It also cracks me up that she believes everyone riding the MegaBus in DC is going to the marathon because that is how D and I traveled to Philadelphia last year.
Thank you Julie for a wonderful Christmas gift and the reminder of how important my running is to both me and my family.
