Today I did a four mile walk/jog. Felt good and the beautiful weather helped. Came home a little sore, but overall feeling great! However, this was not the best part of my day….
The best part came about an hour later, I was playing on my iPad on the couch watching some tv and relaxing. My son came in and asked me to go outside and shoot basketball with him. Mind you, he is fourteen and that offer doesn’t come along too often, so I jumped at it!
I laughed and played (and stunk!) in two games of two bounce with my son and my husband. I kept thinking the whole time how nine months ago he would have never asked me because I never would have said yes. My butt was glued to the couch and I was completely sedentary. Never again. I want to play with my kids, even if I never ever come close to winning a game. I want them to ask me to play, and not be embarrassed of me or of the way I look.
Today’s four miles was the most I have ever done, but my day didn’t come close to an apex until that game of two bounce.
