THE STORY:

 

THIS RUN'S FOR YOU TOBI

Running a marathon was NOT part of "My Plan", life has twists and turns, ups and downs, and we can't control what's dealt, but we can control what we want to do with our cards....

When Tobi was diagnosed with Stage 4 Breast Cancer, definetely not part of her "Plan", however she chose what to do next---live a full life.  She chose to make things happen.  She chose to do things, see things and experience things.  Her perspective-----truly inspiring.  Even with the devestating, terminal diagnosis, Tobi made her moments count.  From the night time snuggles with the boys, spending time with her family and friends on a random Sunday afternoon, or a coffee date with Tom, she seized the moments like no other.  She made chapter after chapter in her book of life.  Tobi didn't let a day go by without "living" it to its fullest.  An important lesson that sometimes can be forgotten when life tries to swallow us whole.

As one of five "non-runners" (legit) I was ready to give my number away this past April.....I had a conversation with my dear Tobi, not without swearing and some negotiating, did things started to fall in place.  Like we would always discuss, EVERYTHING happens for a reason--because I believe that with all my heart, I am owning this marathon in her memory.  

I am one of MANY people showing your boys you are still with us!  You continue to INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, HELP US TELL NEW STORIES and make us SMILE girl!  

MY WHY...because I have an opportunity to raise money for an AMAZING foundation and show Tobi's boys their mother had an IMPACT on many.....

MY HOW....not as important as MY WHY,  I will finish....because I can.  

This Run's for you Tobs!

This Run's for Matthew and Danny!  

This Run's for all the amazing, strong women out there who are fighting Breast Cancer!  

This RUN'S FOR YOU!
