Race Day

Today was the 3rd Run for the Fallen (my second year attending). As most of my readers know I ran for Rachel Porto from A little pink in a World of Camo...the Gold Star wife of Cpl Porto who was killed in Afghanistan on March 14th, 2010. A big thanks to everyone who donated. The support feels great. The run itself went pretty well. Big Sis rode her bike (with no training wheels) the entire way while I pushed Lil Sis in the jogger. It was my first time pushing a jogger and a bit harder than I thought it would be. We had a huge storm here this morning so it was super humid. 105 with the heat index to be exact. I finished in about 35 minutes. Not as well as I had hoped but no big deal. Here are a few pics from this morning.

The Fam

Big sis fell off her bike and scraped up her elbow. A quick first aid kit and she was good to go.

Once again thank you so very much. Even though I said it a few times, we are so appreciative and humbled by everything.
