Run, Justin, Run...

A few nights ago Justin and I (along with my mom) were sitting in front of the television.  While my Mom and I were involved in Oprah's Christmas at the White House special, Justin was tapping away at his laptop.  I imagined he was working - boy was I wrong.

After clicking a few more buttons, Justin looked up and said, "Guess what I just did?"  Mom and I both guessed something about Christmas.  Justin stood up and said, "Nope, I signed up to run the Mini-Marathon in May".

Mom and I both looked at each other and I decided I would be the one to say something.  I said, "Honey, your not a runner...."  He explained that he was going to BECOME a runner and needed a goal.  Well, I would say a Mini-Marathon is quite the goal.

Of course, I offered my support.  I'll do anything I can to help - well, expect run it with him.  :)

Jackson and I can't wait to cheer him on at the Finish Line.  :)

BTW - the same day he signed up - he also came home from the grocery with a package of Double Stuff'd Oreo's.  Not sure that is on a marathon runner's diet???  

 Justin starts training after the holidays.  Stay tuned for full reports!  Those Kenya runners better watch out!
