Why do I run?

I THINK I was just in Washington D.C. – the whirlwind tour

Pink… Pumpkins, hair, cookies and everything in between!

Fellow Flowers… it’s more than just a group of ladies running together
4 years ago I was introduced to a new organization. A movement that was happening practically in my backyard. An idea created partially by an old friend.
