Mamavation Monday

This weekend I ran my 2nd non-virtual 5K of the year, the Sandy Hook Run For the Families 5K. I was so excited to be able to run in this race and it is a race I will hold near and dear to my heart for a long time.  It was an incomparable experience.

Pretty much the whole race was lined with spectators, school bands and a children’s choir.  The governor of Connecticut and the First Selectman of Newtown said some words before the race began and there was also a moment of silence and a prayer led by Rev. Matthew Crebbin.  15,000 people were registered and the race was the largest inaugural race in Connecticut history.

I feel so blessed to have been a part of this and show support for my hometown.  I was also so happy that I was able to run the whole race – something I could not do a year ago.  I finished in just over 36 minutes, which is pretty good for me!

I am feeling inspired and motivated and I can’t wait to run the Mamavation virtual 5K this weekend!
