My Mom, The Runner!

My mom recently discovered an interest for running. In March, she signed up for a Women Run Arkansas, a free training program with training groups in cities around the state. In this program she trained up from never having ran before to running up to 3 miles. And in May, on Mother’s Day weekend, she ran her very first 5k!

While visiting us on vacation, mom ran 4 out of the 6 mornings they were here and really enjoyed herself. Dad even joined in on 3 of the runs! The California climate and scenery must have been a good setting, as she set a new personal mile time record of 11 minutes and 10 seconds, when she ran two miles at that pace!

Look at her go!

Happy Running in California!
