One of the many reasons I’m filled with gratitude about running is because this sport has allowed me to experience so many extraordinary things, and spend time with so many phenomenal people. Here are a few snaps taken over the years…

A fun evening at Nite Moves with Jen Brown and Vanessa Willet. Jen won the women’s race in a blistering 19:40! This 5K takes place every Wednesday evening throughout the summer. While it’s never an easy race, it’s a whole lot of fun and offers our community a healthy, spirited activity each week. Afterward there’s food, music, ice cream and raffle prizes.
