I’m not a runner. I don’t enjoy running. What possessed me to register for the Down Syndrome 5K? No idea.
But, after thinking about it, I realized that I ask Alex to do things that are difficult for him all the time. He often doesn’t get a choice; he has to try. If I make him do all these things and expect that he’ll try, then I should be open to doing the same.
Plus, participating in an event which raises money for the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio is always appealing.
Tonight’s event was fun, and I’ll plan to return next year. Maybe I’ll even train for it.
We’ll see how much pain I’m in tomorrow before I start making grand plans, though.
