Some girls are just born with glitter in their veins


Here is the event in photos!! It was amazing. I met some amazing people.  Ran my best time. And enjoyed seeing my boys happy. Thanks so much to Arms Wide Open for giving us this opportunity.

DSC_0884My niece and her friend gave up the better part of a Sunday to run our booth!


DSC_0909Some of my family that came out to support us and took care of our kids so Tony and I could do the run.

DSC_0908Friends new and old came out to support us. It meant so much to see people from our current lives and our past .. as well as meeting new people that have come to care for us.

Pumping up a nervous Jonathan for his big moment!DSC_0918

Holding his hand gave both of us comfort..


Sharing a little bit about us. This park… the run we took literally backs up to my house.I find it almost terrifying that I had no idea a pediatric cancer run took place just a year ago.. let along the desperate need for the funds. I was honored to be a part of it.


DSC_0913Some of the amazing crowd. I think it was over 450 people registered for the run!! More than double the runners from last year. Glitter squad in full effect.. . hope to do the same next year.

p.s Check out how beautiful our town is.. a great place to live… and run 🙂

DSC_0939The moment he had been waiting for.. he was soo excited and nervous. Practiced with Charlottes mic for days!  On your marks. Get set. GO! He nailed it… I love this boy.



My mom… just because she hates her picture taken… but I love seeing how proud she is.


Our new shirts. I love them!! Want one??



DSC_0949Jonathan finishing the kids run… he did the whole thing. We were shocked. His cousin stayed with him the whole time. You can also see the great face painting that was included in the event.. and his firefighter sticker!

DSC_0975Daddy and Nicholas…very far behind the rest of the little ones in the kids run… still being cheered on to the finish! Such a sense of community at this event.

DSC_0010We made Charlotte a shirt too!IMG_4582
