Look what my Mom did

Her group that she ran with. Notice-most of them are my age. (i know I am a slacker)

Proud grandma hugging her grandkids! They were thrilled!

Alright, I am a little biased here.
She is my mom, but I thinking running a half marathon and not passing out or throwing up is pretty awesome!!
She is already my hero-but now she is my IDOL! :)
My mom is pretty great.
Just this year she has learned how to sew, peiced together a quilt that is super cute, and now she can add ran a marathon!


PS-did I mention that at this time last year she could do none of the above?
Also-last week at this time she did NOT have platinum hair. It was a good thing that she did that-we would have never been able to see her come in from the race.

PPS-She turned 50 this December.
Like I said-she ROCKS!
I need to get one of those bumper stickers made up that says my mom is cooler than your mom.

(Can you tell that I am proud?)

It's great that your girls can see their grandma do this.

The pictures of your kids are wonderful.
