It was a very long night and now we wait to hear the final results of the election. It feels like so much rides on this outcome and I am trying and failing to be patient.
I woke up early and ran on the treadmill before getting the kiddos ready for school. Our treadmill is in our unfinished basement.
In the morning Cannon wanted to walk with my instead of riding in the stroller.
Emmy wanted to walk on the way home.
She can’t wait until it’s her turn to go to school.
To distract from the stress of the day my mom decided to run a virtual half marathon around our neighborhood. They live about two miles from us so she set up aid stations at her house and at ours.
She did a few loops to get all 13.1 miles in. Emmy and I cheered her on each time she passed our house.
Emmy had to get some of her own running in. When do we lose that joy of running? I swear all kids look so happy running!
In between cheering Emmy pretended to be tired.
We were able to pick up Cannon from school and get to my parents house before my Mom finished her race. We made signs and held up a finishing tape for her to break because obviously she won!
It was fun to cheer her on and be distracted from some of the heaviness of the day.
We went home to dinner early because I had a class to teach.
After class I spent time following the election and went to bed much too late after realizing we weren’t going to hear an outcome anytime soon.
Did you follow the election?
Ever done a virtual race?
