Journey #59: Mommy Runs This Family

Wie Gehts Freuden,
Let’s Move! I love working out. I have always been pretty active since I was about 10. It’s never been about weight just about being and looking healthy. I have my ups and downs when I can be obsessive about it when I make a goal but, I have learned to enjoy the moment. Dancing and running are the two of my favorite things. Music is the key to any workout I do…my iPod once broke once and it was replaced the next morning. I can’t workout with my music. My friends often comment on my apps and gadgets. My reasoning is since I am rarely sick and don’t have to spend money at the doctors, I can spend my money on workout clothes, gadgets and apps! I noticed my family rarely gets sick. I would like to keep it that way so I decided that we should start a new family tradition! It’s time to Get Moving so, every year we will run two races as a family! The kids and the hubby were very excited. This year we ran our first race as a family in Berlin. We trained 3 times a week for 5 weeks and the kids all did great! We ate very healthy while training as I wanted to be a good example to the family and show them what I have learned all these years. It was a beautiful City Nacht Laufen (City Night Run). I need to step up my speed because my son beat my time. Yes, I was humbled but I don’t lose well so I am not holding back next race. I let him have bragging rights. My kids loved it so much they all asked for iPod touches for Christmas so they could add running apps and music. I thought to myself, they could be asking for mini skirts, boyfriends, or girlfriends. I’ll take the ipod touch request for 199 Alex! What do you have time for with your family?
