I just love this sage advice from the beloved Dr. Seuss, don’t you?
As a preschool teacher, and lover of all things Dr. Seuss, this week was spent celebrating the rhyming doctor’s birthday (officially March 2). So you can imagine my excitement when our girl Amy posted a Dr. Seuss-themed virtual half on our running page! When Amy followed up with a picture of the medal, I was sold!
(Note: I searched and searched for the link, but since the event is sold out I can only assume they took it down?!)
Don’t be fooled into thinking a virtual race means “cheap medal” – on the contrary! I took this to school on Monday to let my preschoolers wear it if they did a great job on their work or helped a friend during class – each child who received it only wore it a few minutes before giving it back because it was too heavy!
The actual medal you will see, in our race photos this weekend, straight from me – right now I don’t want to spoil the fun! But know that this one would let Dr. Seuss know he’s our Number One :)
The beginning and end of my attempt at poetry…back to blogging!
You may remember that a few of us just completed another virtual race at the end of February, She Believed She Could So She Did 10K sponsored by Running On The Wall. Everything shown here was part of the $29 registration fee: tank, bracelet, medal, sticker and bib.
Jen and Tandy, opting for the warmth of the gym, ran their 6.2 side by side on the treadmill. (Different treadmills, not the same treadmill … that would just be ridiculous!)
Also, I’m trying my very first blogger link up today! Amanda from Running with Spoons (because you can’t eat with scissors!) <— hilarious! > hosts Thinking Out Loud Thursdays. It’s a chance for bloggers to connect and support each other :) If you choose to visit her page, this Banana Oat muffin recipe should be your first stop!
I can not wait to share our Dr. Seuss race photos with you!!
Who is your favorite children’s author? Favorite children’s book? Obviously many of Dr. Seuss’s titles are fantastic, but I also love Max Lucado’s “You Are Special”
