This weekend I ran the Mighty Meehan 5K with my friend Beth!
The race was such a great one, filled with so much love and support from the community! Now in it’s 6th year, Mighty Meehan raises funds for infant leukemia research in the name of one special six-month old little boy who lost his battle.
For me, the highlight of the race was getting to hang with Beth! She’s lost more than 70 pounds this year, and become a huge fan of the sport of running! AND she PR’d at the Mighty Meehan 5K – in the very neighborhood she grew up in!
If I recall her story correctly, Beth started out joining a race or two without telling a soul… keeping private, but getting out there! I started to notice her Instagram photos containing more and more running selfies, and most recently she had bought herself a pair of beautiful earrings to celebrate her weightloss milestone. Such an inspiration! And I’m so glad we got to check off a road race together and celebrate her PR!
Have you had the chance to run with someone special lately?
