I ran the Big Red Shoe 15K with my husband and my cousin Chad for the Joplin Ronald McDonald House. I've donated to the house for years and it was an honor to run for their 15th anniversary.
The hills in the run were worse than some of the hills I ran in longer
runs, such as the Hospital Hill Half-Marathon. The last hill, the
Joplin runners like to call "Miss Jackson" was treacherous! However, it
made me a stronger runner in the end. I can say I completed it and we
did it in the heat of the summer for a great cause while training for
our St. Jude Marathon.
