Salt Lake City 5k/Huntsman Heroes

In April we had the opportunity to raise some money for the Hunstman Heroes Foundation for cancer research, something pretty close to our hearts since my mom was diagnosed. Originally, I had wanted to run the half marathon..but once I became preggers I decided I better stick with the 5k. I am so grateful for all those who donated to the cause and all the family who participated! Grateful for my amazing husband who slowly walked it with me even though I know he was dying to run it! I had four amazing aunts, three of which traveled from California to run the race. Our team earned a grand total of close to $2500! YAY! (can't quite remember the grand total) Thanks to the in-laws too for taking Easton for us! We hope to make this a yearly tradition...and I hope to never have to do it pregnant again. I did a 5k in 1 hour, my little brother did 13 miles in only an hour an a half after me! I was a little slow. However, he told me I can cut my time in half since I was carrying another person...

Here we all are at Olive Garden the night before...
