I sure wish I stayed home today.
When you came in our bed five minutes before the alarm clock was supposed to go off, I knew leaving would be tricky.
I should have stayed in bed snuggled up to your skinny, little, five-year-old body. It felt so good, and I felt a little whisper in my heart saying, "Just stay home today." But, like most mornings, I pushed it away.
Things to do. Goals to reach for.
I just want you to know that I love you more than any race, or training, or anything about running.
Today I am sad I have been missing out on all your love. If I could, I would go back to this morning and do it all over again.
