Race For The Cure!!
Jonna's husband Scott participated with all of us and helped calm anxious nerves at the starting line with jokes. He is really funny :)
Shannon's husband Peter and their 2 daughters also came and cheered us on. Peter ended up being the official "holder of stuff" for all of us. Thanks Peter!
Our son Tim and Val's son Kieth came and took pictures. This is Jonna & Scott crossing the finish line. Tim missed the rest of us :) Kind of hard with thousands of people to find one or two in the crowd.
Nastia Liukin & me :)
Nastia Liukin, the 2008 individual all-around Olympic gymnastics gold medalist, is the honorary race chair for Saturday's Race for the Cure.
I am so thankful for each day and the abilities that God has given me. Thanks everyone for shareing this day with me as I put my 11th ribbon on my hat and "ran the race" today!
"I run for hope, I run to feel, I run for the truth for all that is real,
I run for your mother, your sister, your daughter, your wife.
I run For you and me my friend~ I run for life!"
