Waiting for Dallas 5K

The 5K was a success!!!
Chris and I were overwhelmed with all the love and support from everyone that came out as well as our virtual runners. 
Thank you thank you thank you!!

I was talking to Zoey (one of the kids at the 5k) and 
she asked, "Do you know all these people?" 
When I told her I really didn't know a lot of the people there she replied, "Wow and they are all here for you and baby Dallas, that's so cool!" 
Zoey was sooo right! It was amazing! 
Here are just a few of the pictures from Saturday, if you would like to see more go to the Waiting for Dallas 5K facebook page.

Here are the kiddos before their 1 Mile Fun Run

Right before everyone took off, and this isn't everyone :)

Uncle Scott, Chris and John all won metals along with MANY others ....

Pretty much everyone in my family got a metal except me . . . I was too busy talking to make it back fast, even then I doubt I would have placed but all that matters is I made it! :)
Here are all the first place winners from each age-group ...

This guy was in town for the weekend from Ohio that found out about the race and came and ran.

We even had The Avengers! 

The Avengers also brought Dallas a little gift ...

Here are our Waiting for Dallas 5K keepsakes ... Rebecca, our fearless leader/race director, had this canvas painted for us and had the runners sign it. WE LOVE IT!! 

During the entire planning process the crew (Rebecca, Anna, Amy, Adrienne, Ashley, Yaitza and I) just kept repeating to each other, "God's got this!" and I guarantee that without His guidance and intervention this would not have been possible! 

We are so excited to announce we raised OVER $5,000 on Saturday!!!
We don't have the exact total due to some refunds and donations that have not been counted yet, but we'll have it soon.

We now have over $14,000.00 saved!
Only about $16,000 to go!
