Yup, That Really Happened

What is that you ask??


I am headed to Wine and Dine folks!!  I am so excited - I am going this one alone and am looking forward to a girls' weekend with the DisBroads!!  And it just so happens that I needed to run 14 miles that day anyways for St. Jude training so it's a win-win!

What makes this even better is that I have the honor of running this race for a cause - the Christopher DeRemer Memorial Fund.  The fund was started in memory of Christopher, an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran and a member of the Army National Guard who lost his life to cancer.  The charity aids military members and their families who are impacted by catastrophic illness and/or injury not necessarily as a result of their service.  I feel a personal connection to this cause because I have several family members who have served in the military; knowing that if something happened to them that there are resources to support them AND us as well makes me love this cause all that much more.
