This Sunday, almost 4 years ago to the day, Erin & I ran in the local run "Nutrition Fuels Fitness".
We each had a great run that day and were excited to share the news with my Mom. She had been diagnosed with melanoma six months earlier and we made sure to visit her each week-end that Erin was home from school. It was this very day, early evening that my Mom was called to heaven.
I ran in only two races after that day and have struggled with exercising in general since. I have found joy in exercise again and the drive to push myself to be the best that I can be.
This week-end Erin & I will again participate in the "Nutrition Fuels Fitness" run. It will sort of be our memorial run in honor of my Mom.
Think of us this Sunday morning and send a lot of energy my way - I say me as a 10k run for Erin will be a piece of cake! Hehehe...
