My Nieces Want to Run

I woke up this morning to a text from my sister-in-law saying that my nieces school is having a fundraiser next month and it’s a 5k. The girls (ages 8 & 10) told their mom that they’re going to run it with me. It’s only $15 and you get a t-shirt. My sister-in-law told me I don’t need to feel obligated to do it & I don’t know have to do it if I don’t want. I told her I want to do it.

It makes me really excited that my nieces want me to do this and that they want to do it with me. I don’t think they’ll be able to run all 3 miles, but they could definitely run/walk it.

My sister-in-law told me that when the girls came home from school and told her about the fundraiser they were way excited were like “Mom, we have to tell Ant Ara cause she’ll win.” I don’t think I could win it, plus, if my nieces want to run it with me, I will slow down my pace so that they can keep up with me.

I hope with them doing this 5k with me that I can talk my brother & sister-in-law in to letting the 3 youngest kids (ages 10, 8 and 4) do The Dirty Dash with me later this year. I know the 4 year old wants to really bad.
