I just love running. I feel free while going on a run and I love the idea of competing against myself. Each run I go on, I am encouraged to better myself.
Not only do I think running is great for myself personally, but it can also be a great thing for others too! The Colors 5k was only part of a whole day event called "Colors for Tessa". Tessa is a young and very beautiful lady who is battling cancer for the third time in her life. You would think that would get a person down, but this woman stays positive and grateful. She somehow manages to still find the beauty and good in all things, even her own personal trials. I hope my little portion of what I paid to run in the 5k can help her precious family out. She really is such an inspiration. Just watch this video to find out for yourself. Grab a box of tissues while you're at it too.
