It was a perfect morning for the race. I was so worried we would get too hot, but we ran mostly in the shade, so it was nice. There were over 150 runners, and that's great for a first race!
Sweet brothers early this morning
This banner has all the names of babies or children who were being honored in the race. See Reese's name?

Jason and I are just so touched! We love each one of these faces, and know there are many others who wanted to be with us today.
I love how a race gives our friends and family something to do to show they love and remember Reese. I have no doubt they do, but everyone is so different and it may not always be easy to talk about her. They can do something like this, and it speaks volumes!

Mandy pushed the boys so Jason and I could run. Thanks, Mandy! She said Zach kept asking her to go faster. Ha!

When I first heard about the race and shared it with ya'll, I was really emotional about it. I was thrilled there was something we could do to honor Reese, but I hate that we even have a reason to do it. It's refreshing to have something so positive to focus on and put my energy into.
I am already looking forward to next year! Bring it.
You will be delivered by returning and resting; your strength will lie in quiet confidence.
