Three


Sophie turned three today! I can't believe how fast the last three years have gone. In honor of her third birthday, here's three reasons why I think this girl is destined to become an athlete:

1) She has three kinds of shoes: fancy shoes, cowboy boots and running shoes. Call the running shoe "tennis shoes" and the girl will bring all her toddler wrath down on your head.

2) Tonight she hopped up on one of her step stools and started stretching to touch her toes. Her grandma asked her what she was doing. In her best three-going-on-thirteen voice, she said, "I'm stretching because my legs are sore." Why? "From my race."

3) When I told her we would be staying in a hotel this weekend and we could go swimming, she said, "Good. I need to practice for my triathlon."

LOVE this kid.

Did you look at the TCM resultssite? check to see your stats vs overall from 20m to finish. did you pass more people than passed you? mine was a wee bit lopsided. I thought it was interesting...I see you are doing Monster Dash half? I might do the 10
