I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to see their baby endure chemo. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who has had to wear a paper hospital gown just to touch their baby. I am running for every mom, as a mom, who did not get to bring their baby home. I run in memory of my youngest son and cherish everyday with my oldest one. Join me in my adventures through motherhood, family life, and the challenges of being a 30-something athlete.

Wes did his first race!!! He did Vala's pumpkin patch Lil' Goblins Dash. We was in the 3 and under category and was one of 10 kids, one of 2 who didn't run with parents....he's such a big boy! He was super excited and giggled the whole (approx.75 meter) race! He was very proud of his medal!
He wore his medal and his full costume the remainder of the time at Vala's. We watched the adult race (2.75 off road) and got to see some very cool costumes! He picked out a big pumpkin to take home that day too. BUT when it came time to carve it into a jack-o-lantern....he wanted nothing to do with pulling out pumpkin brains! He refused and kept yelling "eeeewwweee...mommy you do it!"
We joined my sister and her family for trick or treating Sunday night. Dave and I put on our costumes and joined in the fun. Dave and I won a costume contest the night before. I must admit, I didn't wear my black under armor with my costume for the party....much more scandalous...I think that is why we won (hee hee)
