Wrapping Up Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month

The QC Half Marathon was last weekend and I ended up finishing the race at about 2:18. Not my best, but it was an extremely warm and humid morning. After draining my water bottle around mile 6 I decided that I needed to take it easy.

More importantly, thanks to everyone's help I was able to raise $350 for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Illinois Chapter and Team Teal.

The entire team raised over $17,000 which I think is pretty incredible. I'm already looking forward to next year and will run the Chicago Half with the rest of Team Teal.

Side note: On September 15, we celebrated mom's 78th birthday by going out for dinner and dessert. She is feeling well and has been in great spirits this summer.

In a couple of weeks, October 8, she has a high school class reunion that she is looking forward to attending in Ottawa. I'm going to tag along as well! I know everyone will be happy to see her and her sisters will be there as well (their class reunions are on the same day, apparently when you get up into your 60 year reunions the classes start to do it together) and of course we will go to church in Ransom on Sunday. It's the simple things that make it fun and I'm looking forward to the weekend as well.
