The Race Shirt Unveiled

It's almost here!!!!

(This year's shirt is red.  I think it's really great!)

Next Wednesday, April 17th, is the last day to register online.  That means that if you want to be a Spirit Runner (we will mail you a shirt) you have to register by that date.  We will not be taking any shirt orders after that time.  If you want to run/walk the race you can still register the day of the race.

**Spirit Runners that are local MUST pick up their shirts either Friday or Saturday of the race. **

Some of you have asked about the race route.  One of our race directors sent me this link to the race route.  .  http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/copy/180362136/  

Today, I took the girls (and Jack) on a field trip.  I can, without a doubt, say this was the most interesting field trip I've ever been on.  It was 48 degrees, it rained all day and we were at the Memphis Redbirds stadium.  I was very disappointed that the kids didn't get to see a baseball game and I grew weary, quickly, of the cold rain. But, it was hard staying too upset when I looked around and saw the kids having a blast.  They didn't care that it was cold and raining.  Oh, to be young again.  

Lucy and her assistant at school, Mrs. Jennifer, both took a nap on the way home.  I love this woman!

  1. Hi Kate,
    Looks like the kids had a blast!! Some of the very best times we have had with a group of kids is when they just get together is a different atmosphere and talk. It seems that kids just don't have the cold sensor unless they are doing something they don't enjoy, like math or cleaning the porch.


  2. Just registered as a spirit runner. I will be thinking about everyone all the way from Texas. Can't wait to get my shirt! :)

  3. I've been reading for a while & just registered as a Sprit Runner - I'm gonna rock that shirt from small town Waynesville IL thinking of you all! :)

  4. Thinking of you all Kate. I haven't written in a while, but I've been reading.

  5. Hey there! I registered as a spirit runner and ordered my shirt but still have not gotten it. Just checking to see if they have been mailed out yet? Thanks so much!!
