5 weeks til Disney!

I can't believe the Disney Princess race weekend is only 5 weeks away, it's coming up fast!

This year I am running the 5K on Friday, the 10K on Saturday and the Half Marathon on Sunday.  I'm a little nervous about how tired and sore I will be, but I am excited to reconnect with other Rett families!  And this year I have two friends joining me for the first time, which will make it even more fun!

Please consider making a tax deductible donation to Girl Power 2 Cure in honor of Riley, and help me reach my fundraising goal!

Donations can be made here:  


Any amount helps, we are getting so close to some amazing treatments for girls affected by Rett Syndrome!

Thank you!!

As Seen On My Run

Every once in a while I like taking pictures of where I run.  

This first picture was from a run I did on Christmas Eve from our house.  It was a brown Christmas for us this year!  As nice as it is to have snow on Christmas I wasn't complaining because I LOVE running in cold weather when the running trails are clear of snow and ice.  


This picture I took a couple of days later before a run I did up in Northern Wisconsin.  Quite a different scene!  We got a huge snowfall the day after Christmas, it was beautiful!


I saw these two right before my run - they were enjoying the snow and built a nice tunnel system in the snowbank!

Another Disney Race

I had so much fun at the 2014 Disney Princess races with Girl Power 2 Cure that I couldn't resist signing up for the Disney Avengers race in California with the same group.  It was WINDY the day of the race, so not one of my better races, but we still raised money toward Rett Syndrome so it was still a great day.


 We are Rett Avengers!


I took Addy with me, she enjoyed the beach!


I think our favorite ride at Disneyland had to be in Cars Land.  Lucas would love it!

Twin Cities Marathon Recap

The 2014 Twin  Cities Marathon was a huge success!  The weather was perfect for running - 30s and 40s - and our Rett Racers team raised over $22,000 for Rett Syndrome!  Thank you to all who helped make this such an amazing event!

Our wonderful cheering section!

Twin Cities Marathon

October is Rett Syndrome Awareness month!

And what better way to start it off by running a marathon!  The Twin Cities Marathon is this weekend, October 5th, and Mitch and I are running it to raise money and awareness towards Rett Syndrome to help Riley and other girls like her.  All money goes to IRSF to help fund research and other important programs.

Please take a moment to visit our fundraising webpage and make a donation if you can.
