When I made plans to visit my sister for the weekend, she threw a ball into my court– one I have been waiting for over the last year.The year before last, we ran a Resolution 5K together while home for the holidays in Fort Lauderdale, and last February, my Beautiful Seester, came to cheer me on at the 2011 Princess Half Marathon. I saw her and my Wonderful Mom, sitting in the ChEARing Section, and my heart soared. Later, she asked me if I thought she could do it, and I remember telling her, run because you want to, not because I do. Since then, she’s taken a shine to running, and our upcoming weekend together is shaping up to be rather interesting!
