The Autism 5k – Gabe’s First Run
My trip to Virginia actually had a purpose, and that was to run a 5K with my nephew Gabriel – his very FIRST 5K. I was so proud that he wanted me to run with him – and I was even more proud when, right out of the gate, I whispered to him to follow those people – pointing at the leaders – and watched him take off…
And take off he did – he completed the 5K in a little over 20 minutes – and that’s impressive for his first one. I’d love it if he came down here for a few weeks so we could run a few more together. I’m just so ecstatic that he loves running – it’s so very healthy and so rewarding. 5K’s also benefit organizations – in this case Autism awareness – so it’s doubly beneficial!
Here we are – running and posing away!
