Lily is in training for the Special Olympics Track and Field event this Saturday.
Wait… let’s back up.
Last year when I signed Lily up for Special Olympics she was the youngest participant on a team of over 100 members. With the coach and myself both being a little concerned for her well being I was kinda asked and kinda volunteered to be one of many assistant coaches. My job would be to stay with Lily at all times and help others when I could.
Now back to “Lily is in training…” When she has to run around the track at practice I too have to run around the track. Do you want to know how long it has been since I did push ups? Oh, that would be this afternoon! I’m sore! I’m tired! And, I know I won’t be getting any gold medals this weekend for all my hard work!
But it will be worth it to see her running in her 50 m dash. She has also added the Turbo Jav this year. We are still working on her aim, so if you are there on Saturday be ready to duck.
This is her school spring picture.
