Race 4 Rob

November 12, 2011
I've been in a few 5Ks now but this one was really special! Most races are for some sort of charity but this one was really close to home for me. This was a race to raise money for a family friend Rob Hale. Rob's dad was my stake president (a church leader) for many years, his brother was one of my close friends in high school and his mom and sister were skin care clients of mine. I LOVE the Hale family!!!!! Rob graduated from the UNLV dental program and then went on to Texas to for specialty training (another TWO years). When he was about a month out from graduating he suffered a brain aneurysm and a stroke. Through the grace of God he is not only alive he is progressing more and more each day toward living a normal life! Miracles have happened!!!! He is doing well but still has a long journey! Of course there are many, many medical bills, plus just paying for everyday life. He is married and has two little boys. To find more information please visit http://helpingthehales.blogspot.com/
It was so wonderful to participate in a fun event for a wonderful cause! It was a blast seeing some old friends!!! Now as for my running......I finished in under 30 min!!!!!!! This was my goal:) My last 5k was on October 22nd. I cut FIVE minutes off my time in less than a month! YAY me! I've been running two day a week with a running group from church and I've also been going to aerobics classes at church 2-3 days a week. I am loving it!!!

How cute is my Mom!?!
She also cute time off her run!!!
We send much love to the Hales and pray for many more miracles!!!!
