I signed myself and my 4 kiddos up for a 5km Fun Race a couple of months ago.
We ran it last week.
I have to say races are so much more enjoyable and fun when there are people in it
that you know and love and enjoy being with.
We good~naturedly all tried to outrun the other...through the dark of the evening, over ice, through snow drifts, waiting at stop lights,
inspiring each other in a competitive way to run just a bit faster.
Of course, I didn't come in first-
(but I like to think it was close;)

So I guess the quote for me after this particular
race would have to be:
|“Second place is not a defeat. |
It is a stimulation to get better.
It makes you even more determined.”
