run, char run!!!!

hello family! it's been a minute, actually my last post was 7/1. i mentioned in my last post that i was preparing for the ch'ville women's 4 miler. well, its almost here!!! my training has taken a back seat, but i be will participating in the race. its not that i havent been training at all, just a lot less then i wanted to..all my fault. when i am training, i have been running more and i kinda like it. i will NOT be running the entire 4 miles, but i will run as much as i can or til i pass out. lol. i have 2 goals: to finish and to finish with a better time than i did last year. i'm confident i will do both.

last year, i walked the race in honor of my momma in law, shirley. she is a breast cancer survivor who lives life to the fullest. she got married 2 years ago after being a widow for over 20 years. she's a wonderful person with incredible strength. this year, i am running/walking the race in memory of my dear friend, lisa. lisa and i worked together at a convenience store in the town where i grew up. she was warm, funny and adventurous. i had the honor of singing at her wedding. last week, i heard the song i sang on the radio and i burst into tears. i hadnt thought about her in awhile and now i cant get her off my mind. so, this year, i am running for lisa :)

all of me,
