Mother's Day Complete with A Long Run
When you are a mom and a runner, the one thing you never have enough of is time. So Sunday I slept in. No one woke me up or demanded anything from me. When I did wake up, Bill and the girls gave me an adorable homemade card (my favorite), a Starbucks gift card (also my favorite), and a gift certificate for 2 mani-pedis (the ultimate indulgence). I love that Bill gets me. Because the best gift of all was yet to come. I had my longest run of the marathon training season, and all the time I needed to do it, Bill and the girls hung out, there is no better gift than a guilt-free unrestrained run.
The long run...
Also, I got flowers and a Starbucks card (yes, I love coffee) from the girls' Nanny Dom... What a sweet and amazing girl Dom is. Moms everywhere can relate that the scariest and hardest thing a mother ever does is leave their precious children in the care of someone else. I know how very lucky I am to have Dom. She makes being a mom easier, every single day. Love that girl.
