I winned!

By Sarah Duggan on August 31, 2017

When I told Murphy she was signed up for a race she beamed with excitement, shot a fist in the air and said, “I’m going to get a race shirt! And a medal! And a chocolate milk!”

We dream big at the Duggan house.

Murphy ran the half-mile family fun run at the ninth annual Speedy PD Race for Parkinson’s Disease last weekend. When I say she ran, I mean she ran. The whole time.

When Murphy crossed the finish line, she was grinning ear to ear, “I winned Mommy! I winned!”

Her day (maybe even her WEEK) was made. Race shirt? Check. Medal? Check. Chocolate milk? Check.

Eilish also made it to the race, but she deemed the early morning worth staying in her pajamas. A couple more years and she can winned a race, too. Life is always changing.
