We Made It!

Eyliana and I ran our 5K on Saturday! She had been up all night coughing the night before, so she was not HAPPY about running!

To say "I pushed (pulled) her the whole way" is an understatement, as she cried most of the 3.1 miles.

I prayed most of the 3.1 miles.

I wanted her to finish, but was torn between if I should 1) pick her up and carry her - or 2) leave her behind and run with the other girls - or 3) have her quit and call Dan to come and pick her up.

We both toughed it out, and I am so proud of her!! You can tell by the pictures, she did NOT want to be there! - But, we made it!

Thank Goodness for Daddy's! - The only reason she wanted to finish, was so she could see her daddy at the end!!!
