BENEFITING: OKLAHOMA CITY NATIONAL MEMORIAL FOUNDATION
EVENT: Oklahoma City Marathon 2015
EVENT DATE: Apr 26, 2015
I spent the day of the bombing with my Dad in OKC and so many of my memories of that day include him. He died a year later. I am doing the OKC Memorial Half Marathon with my sister, Janet and my niece, Rachel. There's a photo of us at the Run Lucky 5K in March in OKC. Rachel's friend Monica was with us for that race and is doing the half too. My son Nate has been my training partner. We ran together in our beautiful Methow Valley, Washington with the North Cascades in full view. The posted photo of the mountains was taken on the 9 mile Saturday and there's one of us afterwards driving home. Gotta smile, training with a view like that! Janet and I are going to get our sister Mary to do it next year. (She doesn't know that yet.) She was in dental school at OU when the bombing occurred and volunteered with the recovery effort. Year after that? Watch out Johnny, Annie and Margaret! It's a family affair. And Mom and Al will be cheering us on! Here's to you JH! We all miss and love you! And thanks to everyone who takes a look and to those who donate to support the OKC Memorial!
