Hi my name is kiesha, my husband and I just had our daughter 5 weeks 4 days ago! I'm running this with my mom an daughter an best friend.I wanted to accomplish this before I leave to get stationed with my husband. I've always been athletic but not in this way I did track but only sprints. Honestly this is big for me! I wanted to run this as well since I'm a new mom who wants to get back into her swimsuit this summer! The biggesr reason I wanted to run this was to raise money for my wonderful mom! Who is going to Africa for missionary work, she will be missed dearly but this has always been her dream. I thought what a great idea! I would run this hoping I could raise money to help her live over there for 2 years. She is going over for 6 months unless she gets funded enough to stay for 2 years. I really want to pay her back for being such an amazingly awesome mom and now a grandma. When she invited me to do this 10k I thought bingo! Ill help in this way!!
