Wordless Wednesday: 5K for Boston

Happy Wordless Wednesday. Living just west of Boston, we were closely touched by the events of last week. I was in Florida with my kids so I tried to keep them shielded from the news as long as possible. Once we returned, we discussed the event and the fact that many people were running in honor of Boston in their communities. My daughter suggested we run a 5K in our neighborhood. She is only 7 and has never run a 5K. We did a combo walk/run, but she really felt a sense of accomplishment at the end. I am blessed for every moment that I have with my family. Hug your loved ones closer than ever during these crazy times.

    I ran 2.6 miles for Boston. It wasn’t a race but rather a Memphis unity run through the park. The fast people slowed down, but I still couldn’t keep up. We recognized every runner who had ever run the Boston Marathon. Mike had a marathon shirt from 1983. It was a cool event and raised a lot of money for the victims.

  20. I’ve managed to link up with no issues, woohoo πŸ™‚

  21. Glad you are safe! What a sweet daughter you have!

  22. Theresa says:
