I know Mother's Day seems like it is still months and months away. And I guess technically it is still two months away. But, it is time to register for the 7th Annual Mother's Day 5K Run/Walk. The Run/Walk starts at 8:00 on May 8, 2011. Yes, that is Mother's Day. The entire run/walk is only for women.
I completed the walk last year with my dear friend Krista, I actually went and grabbed this photo of us taken last year.
This picture cracks me up! I am short. Krista is tall. She is trying to shrink down and I am trying to grow so we both look silly! After a newbie completes the Mother's Day 5K, she earns her tiara. I can not tell you how much fun this event was! The course is dotted with Mommy-ism signs. They have specially decorated custom porta-potties.Did I mention the really cool t-shirts? And who does not love balloon flowers hanging over the start/finish line??
I officially registered today. I know Krista is planning to walk with me again. I would love to see more of my Mommy friends join us. What a better way to celebrate Mother's Day than making a statement that your health? I can't think of one. I am thankful I am around to do another year.
If you would like to register for the Mother's Day Run, please use this link. Send me a shout-out and let me know if you will be walking with us. Since it is Mother's Day, make it a generational event. Bring your Mother. or Daughter. or Sister-in-law. or Best Friend.
