"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly."
-Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Heber Valley Memorial Run

Every year since their Val, Kathy and Quincy passed away in a tragic car accident, the Draper's put on a race in their honor. It has turned into such a great community event. The proceeds all benefit a local charity that they choose that year.

This year Will and I ran the 5k, and Paige and Annie ran Quincy's Crazy Mile. On the board at the registration desk you could write on a note who you were running for.

I think of my Aunt Kathy often while I am running. She reminds me to always always always be grateful for every breath. 

I ended up being first overall female, and Will did awesome with a time of 34:41!

Annie ran the entire way for her mile- no walking at all!- and Paige and I got to cheer her through as we were not quite half way through when Annie finished. That girl is going to run marathons with me one day. 

Paigey had fun going through the obstacles and loved cheering for others most of all. It was such a fun race!
