Run Cancer Run

After my long run on Saturday I came home to my older two girl being very excited about running. So I registered them to run the kids 1k at the race I am running in this weekend. When I told the girls they get to run like mommy- they promptly asked if we could go buy them some running clothes. Maybe that is the only reason they wanted to run in the first place!!

On my recent long run I was struck by how many women were running.  It was interesting to me how I found each of these women inspiring as well.  The young lady who was running with a knee brace.  The younger girl who looked to be just starting out on her running journey.  The older women who smoked me.  And even the heavy set woman out on a brisk walk with her dog.  Each of those ladies gave me a little extra to go on during my run.  And something else that didn’t go unnoticed – I saw only 3 men and only one of those men was running.  🙂  So I am going to run like a girl.

So I signed up for a local race today.  I figured it would be a good idea to actually experience one race, albeit small time, before the big show in October.  It is also a race for a good cause.  This sweet young family lost their mother and unborn little girl when Lise was hit by a car and killed while out on a walk and 7 months pregnant.   The money raised at the run is going to her husband and two boys left behind.  I signed up for the 10K, mostly because that is what Heidi, my sister, signed up for.  It should be a good run!  If you are in the area, you should consider participating, or just come down to cheer us on!
