....in exactly one month, i will be participating along with a great group of people in the 2nd annual run for new life 5K. i am actually running this year!
if you aren't familiar with our "story", here it is in a nutshell: we are a group of friends (3 of us who have lost babies and our mutual OB) who believe that the idea for this annual race was divinely inspired and in each of our hearts before we all even first spoke about it. and since pregnancy and infant loss is something people still avoid talking about, we felt that it was the perfect way to honor those who have experienced loss as well as memorialize the babies we never held or didn't hold for very long. for me, it means very much to be able to do something, anything, in jonathan's memory.
if you live in the local area (destin/niceville/ft. walton beach) then we would love for you to come out and support this event! or, if you want to travel here from another area, we are totally OK with that, too. :-)
we are currently working on last minute details to try to make this event just as great as last year.
if you are interested in joining us, here is the link to register: http://www.active.com/running/niceville-fl/run-for-new-life-5k-2011 the first 200 to sign up will get a long-sleeved red t-shirt with a similar design from last year, including a place to write in the name of a baby or child you are running in memory of.
you can always contact me for more info as well.
