The 5th and final #PMK5K...I can't even begin to thank you all enough for the love & support over the last 5 years. What started as a small idea to honor Paula...turned in to almost $40,000 raised 5 years later...I am so blessed to be a part of such an amazing accomplishment. We can't do any of this without you...and I am eternally grateful...To all of the participants who have come 1 year or every year!
To my best friend, Kristi, who travels 6+ hours every year without a second thought with all of her kids in tow...thank you & I love you.
To my high school classmates/friends who help, run and support...I always look forward to seeing you each year...to catch up briefly and to know that after almost 20 years of being out of high school, it's awesome to know that we are all still friends.
To my extended family who travels several hours to Clyde each year to support our cause and to honor Paula.
To my Atlanta peeps who have become my family...your continued support and love these past 5 years has blown me away... To my Mom & John and Dad & Jane for their multiple trips running here or there or for using your storage space to keep all of our race stuff in it and for last minute help to go buy this or to bring this from the house or to print this, cut this and fold that!
To all of Paula's friends who drive several hours year after to year to remember her & honor her. You guys are simply amazing.
To Jen & Michelle for your unwavering love for Paula to put this race on each year with all of us being out of state. I love all of you and am so thankful to be a part of this!
To Miranda for being placed on this earth to find an answer to #endAFE. I couldn't imagine my life without you in it some how! I will fight with you and do whatever it takes to help you find an answer. I love you!
To the other AFE Families...we do this in memory of Paula, but we do this so no other family has to endure what we all did. You are always in my thoughts.
To Stephen for being my rock for loving me through all of my flaws and for being driven all over the Midwest the past few days without too many complaints and putting up with my stress. I love you!
