Running through May

We literally ran through the month of May. I had 4 races this month, the girls ran outside playing until past bedtime each night and in there celebrate Mother’s Day.

This past month I ran in the Market to Market Relay (75 miles 7 person team from Jefferson to Des Moines), Head for the Cure, was the Race Director for a triathlon at the Y, and finished it out with the Dam to Dam. Each race was so different and loved each and everyone of them. The Head for the Cure race holds a special place in my heart as my Father in Law is battling brain cancer and I make it my mission to give it all this race and this year was the first place female race and finished second overall. This was also a race we did as a family so after I finished, I ran back and met with Jake and the girls and finished with them.
