Fast Fridays: Strength

Fast Fridays (3)

One thing I love about our family is we do fitness together, whether its taking a run or challenging each other on planks. These boys absolutely amaze me with their strength and stamina. I remember working up to a mile in 5th grade, and these boys can already run a 5K without training!!! They push me and challenge me, but encourage me as well when I can’t physically keep up with them…yet. 😉

They make it an all-out America Ninja Warrior Competitions out of the playground equipment. {My apologies, preschool moms for the “what not to do” examples my boys have probably displayed}.

I love their drive to do something better, to get stronger, to accomplish hard things. I admire it and want more of it in my own life.

I love that strength isn’t dependent on size and isn’t containable.

Thank you boys, for making your mama stronger in so many ways.

 

And just for a Friday laugh and amazement, here is Henry planking for over 13 minutes!

    Our boys LOVE ANW! We go to the skate park on base and practice the warped wall (or “word wall,” as 4-year-old Jude calls it). Then we head to the playground and do the balance obstacles, cargo climb and anything else we can fit in.

    Yesterday, Jude did a warped wall, let out a blood-curdling yell, and said, “Who am I?” Jack guessed, “Ryan Stratis?” “Oh yeah!” Jude replies. 🙂
