Run On

Watching people run on to fly in the face of what happened on Monday has been awesome.
Hearing the stories of service and sacrifice, especially from those who ran to those in need at the blast site have been completely amazing.

There truly is so much good in this world!

Though I didn't run with a group on Tuesday, I did run.  It's probably cheesy, but it seemed appropriate to stop my Garmin at 2.62...and then run on.
Because as has been proven in huge numbers by runners not just across the nation, but around the world, we will always run on!

And now (though I feel a little guilty for celebrating something in regards to running), I get to share news that allows me to run on in an amazing opportunity.

I made the Nuun Hood to Coast team!

So. Dang. Excited.

Apparently this did the trick!
(I give credit to my nine Nuun kids and my amazing husband!  And I do have to clarify-again-that the bit at the end about convincing Aaron that he can do all of the kids 24/7 was a joke.  He is so great and totally encouraged me to apply!)

I really am so excited and so grateful for this chance!  There were so many amazing women who applied for this, it is a privilege to be among those chosen.  I can't wait to meet all of the other incredible ladies who will be there in August and already have the countdown going until I head to Seattle!  

Have you run Hood to Coast?  Any suggestions on which legs to request?

I am running Ragnar Wasatch Back in June, so that will be a nice dress rehearsal for HTC, figuring out what to pack and all that good stuff.

I am looking forward to stalking all the other team members in every spare minute of the next few days!
