She want’s a rematch
Eldest daughter and I raced on the lawn at Skyllands manor when she was 10 and I was in my early 30′s-
I beat her
We were living in Northern New Jersey at the time.
She’s now a mommy herself with two little ones.
She’s started working on her bucket list recently and beating me in a foot race is on the list.
When I got wind of it I told her I would race her again any time
but she better do a little training first because I still have what it takes.
Maybe when I’m 80 and using a walker…
That’s all it took to put a fire under her butt.
I said, how about next June on your birthday?
Why not go back to the original site?
So the gauntlet has been thrown down.
I saw on her facebook status yesterday I think she’s taken the bait.
The ironic thing is, she will be about the age I was when we first raced so if you’re not doing anything June 18th 2011 you’re invited to come and cheer.
Here’s a picture of Skyland Manor:

Here’s a link for directions on how to get there.
What do you think?
There is a little part of me that wants her to win, but that would make for a hollow victory right?
I guess you’ll just have to come and see what happens.
