65 roses 5k satellite run!

i am SO EXCITED to announce that it was approved this morning to allow for "satellite" runners for this years 2nd annual 65 Roses 5k run to benefit Cystic Fibrosis (many thanks go out to Sam!). this race in general means a lot to me, as it is for a cause very near and dear to my heart. after hearing about the passing of my brother-in-law, Aaron, the race director asked if it was ok to dedicate this years race to Aaron. obviously i said OF COURSE!! what a great honor... i wish that more people in this world could have had the opportunity to meet Aaron, but all who did were touched in very profound ways.

please consider registering for this 5k run and running it in your own town. gather up a few friends, run on a treadmill, take a 3.1 mile walk through the mall... its for a GREAT cause and would be a great honor for me and my family to have you participate with us. ive been a part of many great virtual races and an AWESOME satellite run (oh yeah, doin it again this year too i dont have any prizes for you all, goodie bags wont be sent out, but for a $20 donation to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation you can help support awareness and the search for a cure.
