Over the summer he decided he wanted to go to Cross-Country Camp. I had to keep my face straight....trying to contain my excitement because I love this sport...but I want him to do a sport because he enjoys it, not because it’s my fav🤷🏻♀️. He loved it.
When school began, early morning practice began too. He was nervous. He knew practice would be different than camp. He knew it would be hard. He also knew he really wanted to do it.
Each day I’m so stinking proud of him, for many reasons, but now he’s added another reason to the long list😊. This kid is not a morning person, like his momma, but every morning he’s up. Every night he lays out his clothes & packs his Cross Country bag. He tells us every day about his runs, what hurts😂, and what he’s learning about the sport & himself.
When I grow up I want to be like this kid😂. Face my fears, give my all no matter what, push through pain, and enjoy the progress with joy on my face!
