Gone For A Run One Awesome Mother Runner 5k Information

I got a text a few weeks ago from a friend of mine who wanted to run a virtual 5k for her birthday at the end of May. I told her I would look in to it and get back to her. Then I remembered Gone For A Run was offering a Mother's Day themed virtual 5k! Problem solved! It is time for the One Awesome Mother Runner 5k!

Let me give you a little background on my friend Teil. First off, she is one awesome mother. In November 2014 she weighed in at 356 pounds. She decided she was ready to change her life. In July 2015 she underwent weight loss surgery, the gastric sleeve, and never looked back. Today, she is down to 190 pounds! She is still monitoring her food intake, keeping up with her vitamins and most importantly exercising! It has become a huge part of her life. She has such an amazing attitude and is the most motivated person I have ever met. I am so proud of her and her journey.

Really guys, it's amazing!

Together, we are going to complete the One Awesome Mother Runner 5k May 14-20. There are a few options you can pick from when you register, one with a shirt and one without. In both options you get a medal and your race bib.

I also got my Gone For A Run Virtual Race Team tank! I can't wait to wear it for our 5k.

Gone For A Run virtual races also support amazing causes. For this specific race, proceeds benefit Star. Star is an organization that supports individuals of all ages with development disabilities.

So join Teil and I May 14-20 as we hit the road and earn our One Awesome Mother Runner 5k medals!
