I couldn’t let the day slip away without remembering Momma in some way. Today marks 8 years since she passed. While the hurt isn’t as heavy, I still think of her daily. I have her thank for getting me to run, even though it was by her passing that I decided to start. She LOVED running. Much more than I ever will. But each run I think about how I am blessed to still be here, be healthy, have two strong legs to run on – I know she would still be running if she could. So here’s to you Momma for raising me, loving me and getting me into the sport that you loved.

Momma and Me
