Our team!  It was SO cold on Thanksgiving morning – I think I had five layers on!

My sweet husband – who NEVER runs – finished in under 27:00.

I did not.

I don’t want to talk about it.

We made the shirts and put everyone’s names on the sleeves.  I’m certainly not the most crafty person out there, but we definitely had a blast doing it!

I wasn’t sure how well I would do after such a long running hiatus, but I ran slow and steady and finished strong.  You can’t ask for much more than that 10 weeks after thoracic surgery!

So grateful to see my team cheering at the finish line!

Bella and Zackary’s hand prints were on the back of all of our shirts.  It was kind of a fiasco to do it, but SO worth it in the end!  This face …



Thank you to everyone who supported our team – and who have continued to support Wheels For Bella.  They have raised just under $17,000 and have several fundraisers lined up over the next few months.  The outpouring of love and support has been a tangible reminder of God’s grace on earth.

Peace, my friends!
