Since Ladybug was given her Eternal Rest. At this time last year, we saw her deteriorate our eyes. There isn't a day, we don't think about her. There isn't a finish line, I don't cross without her on my mind.
For those who do not know the story, please read here
I will be unable to run the 6 Tunnels 5K or Half Marathon (I am running the LA Full, that same weekend) - I will be running the LA Full as my 1 year Memorial Run to Ladybug.
I will have this bib pinned to my back....
(FYI - I bought the big at Races2Remember.com)
My family will be close to the finish line with Ladybug signs, I hope to get close enough to them to carry one of the signs across the finish line.
But, never fear - Ladybug will still be remembered at 6 Tunnels. My Wednesday night running pal, Angela W. will be wearing a Ladybug patch during the Half. What a great friend, huh?
Have you ever run for a reason? Run to honor a loved one? Please share your story...
