Out of the Mouths of Babes
My Best Girl wanted to take my (very nice) half-marathon medal to show her kindergarten class, so I told her I would bring it in for her when I came to volunteer (there was no way it was making the journey in her backpack). On Friday, she held it up in front of the class and received a round of ooohs and aaaahs.

Then one of the kids asked me, "Did you win?" I laughed and said no, and another child immediately said, "Did you come in second?" I said no again and explained that I finished 3000 something (3708 out of 13,000+ women to be exact). One of the kids said, "Wow. They shouldn't have even let you have a medal!" So funny!

Although the kids in her class were not impressed with my finish, my Best Girl has been my encourager throughout this entire training process. When I arrived home last week, she gave me this:

In case you can't tell, that's a crown that says, "Yay Mom" and a "Good Job." I am thankful for my cheerleader!

Awww, what a sweet cheerleader! Too funny that they thought you should't get a medal for coming in the top 20%!!! :)
