Go Little Grandma Go!!!!

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

I am so proud and excited in the fact that my dear grandmother was featured in the Dallas Morning News!!! My family will be running the Dallas White Rock Marathon relay together this Sunday and apart of the team is my 81 year old grandmother!! I wish more than anything that I could be there to run with my family. I will have to wait until next year!

She is my inspiration for sure! What a great lesson in life we can learn from someone who gets out there are lives, really and truly LIVES up to her potential each and every day.....even at 81!! I am so glad I have her genes, she is my grandmother after all! I can only hope and pray that I have this much spunk and spirit when I am her age. Thank you, grandma for being such a wonderful example to me in so many ways.

Rooting for you all the way from Siberia! Go get em' grandma!

Here is a link to the article as well as a video of my grandmother!

    Jen, that is amazing!!! I watched the video clip and she is absolutely awesome...I love the giggle You are a very lucky woman to have such inspirational and healthy role models within your family to look up to! I think so many of us would have had a better start in life with healthy and fitness had we had loved ones around us like your Grandma. I'm going to share this with my husband as proof that life is completely what you make it! This is just more proof that if you take care of yourself, age is only a number!

    That is SO cool!
    I also think it's great example they set, getting together as a family to do something for their health and fitness! I'm sorry to hear you won't be able to join them this year, as I'm sure that would mean a lot to you, and to them, but as you said....next time!
