The season has started, first track meet of the year was last weekend…best time and lessons learned…what a way to start off the year…Go Chloe Go

Track season is around the corner for Chloe...practice starts on Monday. Of course I cant wait...another one of my favorite times of the year! Rain, winds, or snow…it doesn’t seem to bother her, and she doesn’t complain
We have had a mild winter this year, but the last two weekends have brought on the snow, especially this weekend. No one was out…so Chloe and I decided it would be a perfect time to explore the beach! And we did:) What a better time to have the whole beach to ourselves, during a wee winter blizzard of sorts.
We had fun, I did that is and I know she did...taking pics of her running and just enjoying the moment. See I had promised her hot chocolate at the end of her little running adventure...I do bribe her from time to time! And most of the time it works…so please don’t tell on me. We went to the city beach and then drove around the lake and she ran at Higgins point. I think I just luv her stride:)
Its times like this that I still pinch myself, amazed that she still doesn’t mind hanging at times with me...
She will be 16 soon...this summer which is right around the corner. I don’t want to live my life through my kiddos, I want them to live their life's, I just want to be involved, and so far I have been...knock on wood!
Just seems lately I have seen a lot of parents saying about the choices their kids are making is “Oh yah that is just what kids do...after all didn’t you do that at that age”. I would like to think that perhaps by making a good example for my kiddos that Mike and I can continue to lead them down this good path of healthiness. I don’t want them to succumbed to peer pressure and just do it cause all the cool kids do it. You know, like drinking, smoking, sex, and rock and roll. Well the rock and roll is ok:) My saying if you start young you have less of a chance of making it old with the addictive stuff that is!
Ok, back on track about running and such. I am so happy that Chloe still likes to run after all these years. It seems to be a passion of hers, she has a lot of good times with her team and always seems to have a bit of a smile on her face. I like that.
If I can wish a few things for this coming track season...Chloe will be running the 1600 and 3200...is that all the positive influence from all the friends we know…near and far continue to give her good vibrations for every one of her races.
You have all helped her remain true to herself and as humble as can be. Just one more reason that makes my Chloe be the best she can be. Thanks from the bottom of my ironing basket for that…
