My reason to run

I have lots and lots of pictures to share of my 1/2 marathon weekend. I am still recovering so that post will have to wait. I do however want to post this one now. Because it is my favorite one. Brooklyn is the reason I participated on Team GP2C for the Disney Princess 1/2 marathon. BELIEVE ME- I am NOT a runner (anyone who knows me can confirm this fact!) In fact - until this weekend it you were to ask me if I could do a 1/2 marathon my response would be "no way, I CAN'T do it!"
But then I think of Brooklyn and everything that she deals with on a daily basis as she lives with (and battles with) because of Rett Syndrome and it motivated me - it motivated me to do it because I have legs that CAN run. SO I ran for Brooklyn and for all the girls (and a few boys!) that have Rett. Thank you Brooklyn - for your inspiration! I pray that someday soon YOU will be free from Rett Syndrome and running with me!

Hooray! Can't wait to hear the details and see everyone's pictures. I'm sure it was a great day. And if you would have asked me before last weekend if you could have I would have said, "Absolutely." :)

Great job, Kelly! I have loved seeing all the photos from the run on Facebook. It looks like you guys had a great time. Brooklyn is blessed to have such a great mom! Congrats:)
