London's Run

 London's Run is a race held every year since 2006 in honor of London Solomon, a courageous seven year old in our community who lost the fight against Leukemia in 2005.  Over its first five years, London’s Run has raised more than $250,000 for area families in crisis.  This year over 1,000 people participated in the fundraiser run (1/2 marathon, 10K or 2 mile).
This is mine and my husband's 4th year participating in the run.  It is one of my favorites.  Along the trail they have posters of children that are fighting cancer with encouraging words to motivate you throughout the race.  It was hard for me not to get too emotional when I saw these pictures and thinking about these precious children and the battle they fight every day.

I ran the 10K with one of my good friends Linae.  Our goal was to run 8 1/2 minute miles and we beat our goal!! I was so excited and so glad Linae pushed me! I felt good about the run, but more importantly was glad to participate is such a good cause!  My heart and prayers go out to those families with children fighting cancer.    ---Becky---
