Special note to Jami...SISTER ~ I hope you know how absolutely amazing I think you are! I Love being able to get out and run with you! I love being able to vent our frustrations out while we pound the pavement together! I love how on my off days you encourage me to keep going, and vice-versa! I LOVE how we have choosen life and have choosen to do something about ourselves the right way!!! I have looked up to you all my life and am so grateful that the good Lord blessed me with 1 AMAZING sister!!! I Love you!!
Me, Alyssa, Carly, and Jami...We went out and bought these shirts the night before. We found them at Target and they say...'Motivate. Dominate.' We joked how we were at the run to motivate people, and they could dominate!
Why the Ethan's run had SO much meaning...
My niece Jessi gave birth to the sweetest little boy, Lewis Jess, a year ago February 24th. He was born with heart defects and went through open heart surgery just a week after he was born. To make a LONG story short...he is an absolute miracle!!! Well, just a couple rooms down from Lewis Jess was a little boy named Ethan Skidmore. Unfortunately Ethan's life had a different outcome than our little Lewie. So this run was put on in honor of Ethan and the money was donated to 'The Congenital Heart Foundation'. It was MORE than an honor to run for such a cause and to have the sweetest picture of little Lewis pinned to our shirts! I hope Jessi, Alvin, and Lewis know how much we love and adore them!!!

Me and our little miracle boy, Lewis! Oh how I love this boy!!!
Lewis...I Hope you know how much your Auntie Tiff loves you. I can't be in your presence and not feel our Heavenly Father's love. Who knows what this life will hold for you or even how long you will be here to bless our lives, but know that you have already touched and changed so many lives, especially those of your family. We love you more than you will ever know!
