I learned something last month about my mom - something that I might have known but didn't remember. When mom was 51 years old, she ran in the Bay to Breakers. I know the Bay to Breakers because my husband ran it a few times. And I remember that my dad ran the race. But I seriously do not recall my mom running - in a race or at all! But there she is, right in the center, red shorts and white t-shirt.
I know there are many things we don't know about our parents, things our kids don't know about us. I imagine asking mom about this story and hearing her say it was not a big deal.
