We were just about to turn a corner and see the finish line. I told Mia “here we go you just ran 13.1 miles”. And with my last words of advice I told her “you cross that finish line like you won the whole thing.” And she did win. That’s what I love about running. She beat her doubts. She wasn’t sure how she was going to finish this thing. But she did it. She said she wanted to run 13.1 miles to celebrate her 13th birthday and she did. She wanted to cross the line together but I knew she had so much speed left in her. As we started sprinting I said “Go Mia, Go”. And she was gone, I couldn’t catch her. I didn’t want to if I could. I wanted to see her do this. It’s a special feeling and I wanted it to be her moment. There’s a bond that forms when you struggle along side someone. When you train with someone and put miles in together. Me and Mia became Sole sisters that night. 13.1 Miles where I wasn’t her Mom I was her equal on the pavement. We were both out there together, hot, hurting, chaffing, running. We endured. And now we have this cool thing that we share forever. We ran a half marathon together. #davismoonlightrun #halfmarathoner #13point1at13 #goalachieved #believe #runner #motherdaughterrunners
