Together the six members of our team ran 26.2 miles! What a huge feeling of accomplishment when you cross that finish line! It was totally amazing to finish knowing that we did this to accomplish something greater than ourselves and to remember the day that hundreds of innocent people died. It was really heartbreaking to see the runners with signs on their backs that represented friends and family members who had passed away. I saw a lady running with a sign representing a 15 month old baby and my heart melted. How lucky we are to live the life we do. When we walked through the memorial several people had put their medals on their loved ones chair along with their bib. It really made me thankful for my family.
The OKC Memorial-it was really great to see so many people running in honor of those who lost their lives.
I love my sweet husband and I am so glad he joined our team and ran with us!
This is Abbey. She is in my class. Her dad also participated on a relay team along with Sarah's husband! I'm so glad she got to come see her dad run and her teacher too!
As you can tell it was a very windy day, but we were thankful the storms didn't come until later in the evening! What a successful marathon!
Can't wait til next year!
