Mother’s for Clean Air 5k

Running for a Cause and Learning More about Sustainable Living!

Today I ran the Mother’s for Clean Air 5k in Houston, TX…I dedicated this race to my late grandmother-in-law, who passed on Thursday morning. My goal was to set a PR, and I did it! Here’s to you Grandma S!

  • 9/45 (age group) corrected…10/51 now (as of 4/12)

Also, Mark ran his first race! And he didn’t do half bad, as he doesn’t train nearly as hard I as do and was having a horrible time with his allergies today…

After the race, we had our becoming traditional breakfast at Ziggy’s and then I went climbing with a friend who hadn’t climbed for nearly a year after becoming pregnant/giving birth. It’s been a great day! Now to cook Easter dinner and our secret first Daring Bakers challenge ;-)

With Easter and having to go back to Philly for the funeral next week, my posting may be scattered, but I’ll do my best to update as I am able!
