"Go Gracie, Go!!"

Grace and Alexa ran a 5k race at Sugarhouse Park with Aunt Suzie on Saturday. Alexa made a last-minute decision to run it and I was so impressed by her endurance! Suzie pushed Grace in a jogging stroller (what a woman!) then several yards away we got her out of the stroller and let her run across the finish line in her walker. Alexa was so sweet and waited for her, and Grace was absolutely adorable running as fast as she could so she could "win the race". Both the girls got a little medal and Grace kept saying "I won the race! I'm the winner!" I think there were very few dry eyes watching her cross the line (especially mine). Suzie was so sweet and worked her hiney off to make this possible for my girls and I love her so much for that!

I'm so honored I got to do that for Grace. And holy cow...Alexa what a champ she amazes me! I am such a lucky Aunt to get to experience this with them. Love you!

Congrats to Suzie, Alexa and Grace! Way to go! I am running my first race this Saturday. A 5K. I'm happy to be running. It feels so great.
