We run for Rescue!

We ran the St. Jude Half Marathon this morning.  Wendy and I ran for MAGRR, Tim ran for NMGDR and Sherry ran for the Vining Sparks Hero Team.  I'm not sure we can say it was lots of "fun", but we all finished and it was a great race.  Around 11,000 runners were on the course and lots of volunteers cheered along the way.  Around mile 7, someone came along beside me and asked if I had fostered Autumn.  We chatted a little while and it was so great to talk to one of our Foster's adopters.  Autumn is now Sooie and she lives in Germantown with her family.  That alone was worth the 13.1 miles.
