For the third year in a row our family participated in the Spring Run in Placentia, CA. Rylinn has run the 1K every year for the past 3 years & Ava has participated in the 1K for the past 2 years. My 2 year old niece Zulema joined my girls' this year too which was exciting. This year for the first time Cord ran the 5K along with my family members Steve, Amy, Julio and Chad.
It was a beautiful day and it was the first time my step dad Steve has run since my mom's accident over a year and a half ago. Amazingly, he still ran 3 miles in under 30 minutes at his age placing 7th in his age group! Not bad without any training. This day was the first time since my mom's accident that life seemed almost normal again-YAY! Maybe next year, she will be running again too!
