My mom & I after the Mckenna 5k

My mom-my inspiration/coach

A year ago my mom (Debbie Bates) and I decided to start running to get in shape. When we started, our goal last January was to complete the Bridge Run 5k in May. After that, we set our minds on running the half marathon the following year. We have both lost weight and gotten in awesome shape. My mom is my coach and encourager. My mom is 54 years old and if she can run a half marathon, then I for sure can. With out my mom as my running buddy, I do not think I would have made it this far. I am so blessed and thankful for her.
