One of my favorite things about the run/walk events is the many mother-daughter teams that participate. To see mothers crossing the finish line with girls as young as 5 and 6, both with huge smiles on their faces, is one of the memories I will most cherish of the Aflac Iron Girl season. Those moments are what Aflac Iron Girl is all about. Those little girls are going to remember the day they raced with mommy, and who knows where they will go with that!
After the run was over, I had an hour and decided to get a run in myself. As I was running past two women who had just completed the 5k I heard one of them say, "The women who did the 10k are amazing." It made me smile because it's good to be reminded that fitness is a lot about perspective. We all look up to those amazing people.
And I think all of you are amazing! Thank you for your inspiration! I hope you enjoy looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them.
