5k run- Autism Cares

Remember how I joined my local gym for 10.00 a month? Remember how my brother suggested I run a 5k to have a goal?

Goal accomplished!

My colleague from work, Jessica and I set our minds to it and ran a good 5k on Saturday! And extra triple bonus? It was for Autism Cares. A local non profit that provides education and resources to local families who have children with Autism.

Autism is pretty near and dear to my heart as my godson, Lucas, or Luki, has been impacted by it. His parents are true rock stars! And he inspires me in lots of ways!

My parents, my hubby and my kids came out to support me on! It was a beautiful day. Freezing but beautiful! And we did very well!

The best thing? I wasn't exhausted at the end. Just ready for more. Good stuff! Good stuff!

OMG Megan--White Meat! You're killing me! I mentioned William's teacher resigned. What I didn't say is that it may or may not have had something to do with a DUI and rehab. I guess the challenges come from all angles. Anyway, GO YOU for the 5K! I'm so impressed and inspired. Not actually inspired enough to start running quite yet. But wow--what an awesome accomplishment! Great update. Miss you!
