Yesterday my son and his friend participated in the MS Mud Run. It's a 6 mile military/boot camp style obstacle course run through...you guessed it...mud! Not my idea of fun but Chris and Kristi were game. Here is their "before" shot:
On the way back to my car, I had the pleasure of walking with and talking to someone who was living with MS. His daughter, aged 12, was with him and hopes to run in his honor next year. He told me he was 40 years old and his goal was to live as healthily as he could so he would be healthy and strong when a cure was discovered. It was a very touching and emotional conversation. This fun day had a very significant purpose behind it - to raise funds for a cure. I sure hope they find one. And soon.
