Jenny: I am running in memory of my recently passed "Oma", Irene Nedbalek, a long time Oklahoma City resident who was late for a meeting at the Murrah Federal Building on April 19. 1995, narrowly missing the attack. I am running as a tribute to the grit, perseverance, and loyalty she so consistently displayed in this life.
Brit: Is in it for the adventure :)
"I'm not telling you to make the world better... I'm just telling you to live in it. Not just to endure it, not just to suffer it, not just to pass through it, but to live in it. To look at it. To try to get the picture. To live recklessly. To take changes." - Joan Didion
