Spread Your Wings Virtual Run Race Recap


I am excited to tell you about a race I did recently as part of the I Run 4 Michael group. Not only does the group match runners with special needs buddies but they host virtual runs throughout the year that raise funds for various great causes and they always offer not one but two medals!

Spread Your Wings was one of these races and this race honored all of our buddies who gained their angel wings.

I am happy to say my buddy is alive and well but being part of this group has opened my heart to the challenges others face and I have cried for many lost souls. I feel honored their parents are willing to share their struggles, pain, frustration, sadness, and triumphs. The group seriously keeps you humble and focused on gratitude in life and reminds you to never take anything for granted.

This race being scheduled for February also touched me since my Dad celebrated his birthday on the 22nd in Heaven.

I ran 6.3 miles. Not my fastest but if wasn't for this race, I probably would have run less.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful for my family and their health.

Daily Bible Verse: I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. Ezekiel 36:26
