Go Team

Wow what a crazy week. James went to the clinic on Wednesday and everything looked great. He started his 5 days of steroids and I am thankful to say that we gave him his last dose tonight. Today was also a special day because 6.5 months of training came down to today. I ran the half marathon today with Team in Training. It was an emotional, awesome, yet exhausting day. I just want to say thank you to all of you who supported me and gave money to my fundraising campaign. To date, I raised 2800 dollars and that is due to your generous support. I have pictures from the day so I hope you enjoy....

I am coming across the finish line...tired!!!!!

My awesome cheering section!

My hero and my motivation!


I decorated the back of my shirt in honor of James. I was also running for my cousin Tim who has Lymphoma and is doing great!

Our family after the race! Go team!

You look great! I wish we could have been there to cheer for you. Where did you get the cute t-shirts for the kids? The Country Music is in April. It sure would be fun to see you again. Hint. Hint.
