This morning was a Remembrance Walk for parents/families that have lost babies, and I attended with Liz and her hubby and kids in memory of their angel baby, Janell. It was only 1.5 miles according to Gus (yes, of course I had to use him), but it was a pleasant start to the day and the weather was unbelievably gorgeous. The turn out for the walk was amazing and very sweet to see so many people come together. For those of you who don't know, I volunteer and am on the board for a local nonprofit called A Small Victory (named in honor of baby Janell), which was founded by Liz and her husband to help ease the pain of people who lose babies to miscarriage, stillbirth and infant death. Yes, it's a sad concept, but unfortunately it happens to more people than you would think. :(
Well, I ended up running only 2.5 miles tonight on the 'mill. 2 miles at an easy 9:00 pace and then a half mile barefoot. Still a little tight from the long run. Hopefully more stretching and lifting will help...
I just want to say that I really enjoy following and reading everyone's running blogs and twitter updates. Everyone is so inspiring to me! Especially today where there were so many peeps running in marathons and halfies. You guys make me excited to run my first half next month. Thanks for the motivation!!
