We did it! I was so happy to be a part of the “Mom’s on the Run” relay team in the Denver Marathon. It was a great experience and something I’d definitely do again. I think the best part for me was the support from people who didn’t even know me. Spectators would call out words of encouragement, some played music for us, some had signs – all of it was great. Of course my team and family were huge supporters too. I’ve never really had that experience with running, it’s always been a very solo endeavor for me and I found that I liked the camaraderie and the energy that running a race provides! I met my mom’s group (my teammates plus a few other moms) through Paul. He was in a park one day after a shoot and noticed some women walking with babies about the same age as our firstborn, Luke who was 3 months old at the time. He just walked up to them and asked about their kids and if I could join their group. I’ve gotten so much from this group since then and here is one more thing – being part of the Denver Marathon!
