I'm so Proud

This girl has never done anything like this before.  She made up her mind to join the cross country team this year (5th grade) and went for it.  I am so proud of her for showing up, trying even when she needed to stop and walk, and finishing.  She has been running about 9 miles a week.  I think that is fantastic for a 10 year old.  She feels so strong and good and she should!  It has been fun to see her gain endurance and confidence.  Exercise does a body good.  Yea for you, Madeline!

Atta Girl!


  1. How much do I love this?!!! Running has been such a positive influence in my life. It makes me so happy to see the joy in Maddie's face as she is running. How cool is it that their school has a Xcountry team? I think you are wonderful sweet Maddie!!!!

  2. Maddie rocks. way to go. I need to call you today or tomorrow so we can talk about the etsy thing more.

    love you.

  3. Great Job Maddie!!! I am so proud of you! I love running - it makes me feel so good both physically and emotionally!!! Keep up the good work!!!

  4. That is amazing..9 miles? I think I may have run 9 miles in the past 9 years put together. Yay for her.
    I wish I were around to 'help';) When are you due? How are you feeling? How are things in general? We need to be in the same hemisphere so we can talk...
    Love you!
