Race Recap

Well, we did it!  The race was a HUGE success.  This year's race far surpassed anything we could have ever imagined.  We don't have a total of the amount raised yet but I can tell you that 561 runners crossed the finish line and 100 children participated in the Kids Fun Run!  Can you believe it?!

I have to brag for a moment and tell you that Ella ran the 5k and finished 1st in her age division.  She ran it in 34 min.  I am beyond proud of her.  If that wasn't enough, she decided to run an additional 3/4 mile with the other children.  She is so awesome.

I will have some nice pictures of the race to post later, but I wanted to share a few from my iPhone.  Thank you all for your prayers and support.  I am so excited about continuing the work of the Go Lucy Go Foundation and I am anxious to see what God has planned for and through us!

  3. Congrats on a great race.

    OK I have to ask a question and hope it is not too stupid......I am from Australia and thought the US were on a non-metric system of miles. Why is the race 5 kilometres (or kilometers) long rather than 3.1 miles? Hope you can answer.
