My grandfather died on March 5, 2014. My grandma had been married to him for 62 years.
She was lost without him.
We signed her up to my gym.
Got her kitted out in some workout gear, new runners.
She motored on the treadmill, track and around town with my older brother.
Father’s day last year, she wore my grandfather’s favourite cap, and completed her first 10K with my cousin…in the rain.
She was 79 at the time
Since then she run and additional 2 10Ks since.
She has won her age in both of these last races, PR’d once.
In between she fell down her icy stairs, broke ribs, punctured a lung.
Being fit saved her life.
Making this race even more meaningful.
We already have her next 10K planned for October.
She wants more medals.
She is my hero.
Never say you are too old, too tired, too inexperienced.
Be like Super Grams. Know she loves you like her own grandkids and she wants you to move! 🙂
