Perfect Moment Monday -- Bolder Than Ever

Last Monday, my husband and I ran the Bolder Boulder 10K. Finishing the run definitely qualifies as a Perfect Moment -- AND we did it on a Monday.

The thing that really made this stand out for me is that our three early-teenage sons completed the run (all 10K) with us. Later, when we asked what they had learned about themselves by completing the run, they said:

• I gained confidence.
• I realized that when you set a goal, you can reach it.
• That even though something seems impossible, it isn’t.

So, I guess I had at least two Perfect Moments last Monday. Truly Awesome!

By the way...I am the one in the picture wearing the green long-sleeve shirt (just kidding)!

It was perfect for me, too, because I got to share it with you up close and personal.

(As much as possible without my actually having to RUN.)

What an accomplishment - for all of you. I think my life will be complete when my kids can verbalize such important things!

you are soo right about setting those goals and then getting to the finish line.
I ran the Boulder Bolder way back in the 80s .. and ran a 5k last weekend. My goal: to keep moving.
Love the BB cause you get to watch the elite runners coming in AFTER you. What fun.
Congrats! keep on running.

Congratulations. That is quite an achievement. It must have been so rewarding for you to have your sons with you too!

Um, hello? Isn't it that you ran with your *sister* that truly made this moment (well 65 moments) perfect???
