Remember The Fallen Virtual 5k

July 31, 2015~ Jacki Swank, Krissy Ellis and I have been waiting to do the "Remember The Fallen" Virtual 5k for a few months now and tonight we would knock it out! It was hot and humid but that wasn't a good excuse so we just went ahead and got-it-done!

In honor of our nation’s military and in remembrance of those who have given their lives to protect our freedom, we present the Remember the Fallen virtual 5k/10k/Half Marathon.

We decided to do this at Stephens Lake Park!
Red, White and Blue seemed fitting for this 5k! 

Did I mention it was hot!?!? 
Jacki tried to push us (which I normally love) but I had to be the problem child for this one....
dang ol' shin splints were killing me! Sorry ladies.... I'll make it up to you! 

Interested in doing this virtual 5k? 
You are in luck as they are still available through Virtual Strides!

About the Charity: The Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) was established in 1980 after a daring attempt to rescue 53 American hostages in Iran tragically ended when a helicopter and a C-130 aircraft collided, killing eight American heroes and leaving 17 children without fathers. What started as a battlefield promise to take care of those children has become the noble cause of the SOWF.

The SOWF ensures full financial assistance for a post-secondary degree from an accredited two or four-year college, university, technical or trade school, as well as family and educational counseling, including in-home tutoring, to the surviving children of Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps special operations personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty. The foundation also provides immediate financial assistance and support to ensure that severely wounded personnel are able to have their loved ones at their bedside during recovery.
A portion of the proceeds from this event (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to the Special Operations Warrior Foundation. For more information about this organization or to make a direct contribution, please visit
