Today is a very special day. Itz Friday (yay!), but itz also my momma’s birthday. And if you’ve ever met my momma, you know what an amazing lady she is. Not only is she a mom, grandma (aka “Yaya”), daughter, sister, wife, friend, but she is also an artist, cook, baker, seamstress, and athlete (she competed in – and won! – three bodybuilding shows right before she turned 50!). Seriously, she does it all, and she does it all extremely well, with no complaints, and always strives to do more.
Itz my mom who I go to for advice, to share my accomplishments, to ask questions, and to just say hi. Itz my mom who molded me into the lady I am today with strong values, good morals, and a passion for living life.
Itz my mom who supports me in anything and everything I do – no matter how challenging or how miniscule the task. I can count on her for when I’m scared or happy or need a shoulder or an ear. Itz my mom who has watched my countless sporting events ever since I was young to my many races in the more recent years.
Itz my mom who married my dad and together they created our unbelievable family, been incredible role models, and the most loving parents a child could ever ask for.
Itz my mom who I love with all my heart, admire, and aspire to be like. Itz my mom who I wish a very happy birthday to today.
And because this is a healthy living, food, & fitness blog, let’s have some High Five Friday action with A Dash of Meg.
Yesterday, I busted out a 7-mile run after school. It was another afternoon run that turned out ok. Seven miles in an hour and three minutes = 9:00 minute/mile pace. Got to keep up that half-marathon training. Afterall, I’m sure my momma is proud!
