Today, Mia finished her first 5K race! I am so proud of my girl! She as accomplished something that her own mama and dad have never even done. Mia ran the race on the UNC campus, with her running buddy and third grade teacher. It was really wonderful that Ms. R could join Mia, she is an avid runner and gave her good pointers along the way.

The weather was perfect - crisp and sunny. Here are Mia and her good friend. Go girls! They have been working hard at their Girls on the Run track meets every week.

And here is the proudest moment, Mia crossing the finish line! Next session, I will be training too so that I can join her in the spring race. Mark your calendars for May 2nd, 2009!
