Natalie's Birthday Run - A success!

First, I want to thank all of you who have donated so generously to my fundraising for St Jude Children's Hospital.  I am really hoping to reach $750 by the time I run the Indy Mini on May 5th, so if you can donate I would greatly appreciate it.  And, if you have the ability to do so, please share my fundraising page with your friends and family.  Every dollar helps! 

Second, sorry its taken me a few days to get this up, but I wanted to share the photos I received from Natalie's birthday run!   (If you submitted a picture and I missed you, please let me know so that I can make sure we get a picture mailed out to you.)

Last, but not least for tonight... a photo of me and the kiddos with our Birthday Run Bibs, I had my own run of 6 miles, but then Natalie and I ran about .4 miles together, and Daniel ran around the house to join in the fun!

My weekend was rather uneventful, I got a 6.2 mile run in on Saturday - I was hoping for 7-8 but decided not to push it with my foot bothering me.  I have the half coming up this weekend.  I think I will stick mostly to cross training this weekend in an effort to hopefully heal up whatever is causing the problem.   Most of the time though, was spent just enjoying time with the family.  Today I had a fun photo shoot, more details on that later!

I hope you are all doing well... what was your favorite part of the weekend?


  1. Congratulations on the birthday run. Sorry I wasn't able to participate in this one - it wasn't the best of weeks for me.

    Great job with the training and take care of that foot.

  2. Cute picture of you and the kids! Sorry that weekend got crazy and I didn't get to run in the birthday run.

    Good luck this weekend with your half!
