This Friday my daughter turns 7. Seriously?!?!?! I can't even wrap my brain around it. The best part is that she is an amazing, beautiful, super smart little lady (perhaps I am a bit biased). She has been asking a lot lately about competing in a Kids Tri next year, and about running with me. I am excited at the prospect of common interest. I got into distance running and then triathlon as a means of getting "me time", after years of feeling like "the incubator" and then "the milk lady". I loved it all, but was excited to focus on personal goals while being Mommy. The fact that she might also share these goals is so exciting. Happy Birthday sweetie!!!!!!
