I love to plan events but sometimes doing something on the spur of the moment can be so sweet. Our oldest has been roller blading his whole life but recently it has helped in his recovery from back surgeries. Last Sunday he decided to participate in a virtual marathon. 26.2 miles from Missoula to Stevensville, Montana. We have a lovely bike path so that meant no traffic which made this Mother happy. We had offered to be support crew but he was using his sister for that. Okay, good to know.
As he started out I got a text from our youngest and I got to thinking. Would it be okay to come watch? You know kids, they like to be asked. She said it would be great and we could meet her at the first checkpoint and cheer Jules on! So I grabbed the hubby (I didn't even give him time to shave...lol) and we headed out. We parked on the other side of his truck so he didn't know we were there, and all three of us cheered and jumped up and down as he went by. His smile told us everything we needed to know. He was pleased.
Em told us where the next checkpoint was and so we followed Jules to each spot cheering him on. It was a lovely cool day and being down the valley was an extra treat. We got to hang out with Em (social distancing and masks) and we were so pleased to watch Jules do so well. I can't imagine what the cars thought as they passed by but we didn't care and the horses were just fine with all our noise. As he skated up for his last little bit I was so proud of him. I am so glad we got to witness it. And happy we just dropped everything to go.
Way to go Jules! Always, Kit
