The NYRR kids races start at age 2 and Sunday, as part of Japan Day was this season’s first kid’s race and the G’s are finally old enough to participate. The fact that it fell on Mother’s Day was like a dream come true. Mother’s Day and The G’s FIRST RACE … Excitement Explosion.
I remember racing the NYRR Mother’s Day run when I was 3 (4?) months pregnant, as I ended the race I saw the kiddies lining up and I immediately said to VC, I can’t WAIT for our twins to run their first race. I have been waiting for this for 4 years now
I absolutely love tradition. Maybe its the old world Indian heritage in me, but tradition is what gives a family its character. Its what ties lineage together year after year. Between my husbands family and my family we have quite a bit of tradition that we are weaving into our lives. But this Mother’s Day tradition, this one is all ours. Actually, its all mine and I can only hope that the G’s are as excited to run with me every year going forward as they were this year!
I hope you all had a fantastic Mother’s Day. What are your traditions?
