Get Your Rear In Gear

Yesterday we participated in the 2nd annual Chicago Get Your Rear In Gear 5K to benefit the Colon Cancer Coalition. This year's race was in beautiful Oak Park, and the weather could not have been more perfect. We did a walk/run combo, and it was a lot of fun. Special props go to Johnny, Anne and Violet Knight who came out to cheer us on!

Super special thanks go to everyone who donated for the cause! Cancer can suck it.

The essay I wrote about Dad is a featured story here.
