SOME Trot for Hunger

28 Nov

Our family’s running team, the Rupert Rascals, did it again!  We placed in the top 10 for fundraising for the great, local Catholic charity, So Others Might Eat (also known as SOME).  Check out the standings here!  We’re so proud to have raised $2655.00.  Thanks to everyone who contributed donations and encouragement!


The race itself was fantastic-flat and easy: an out-and-back, starting at Freedom Center and running by the Capitol.  The weather was a bit chilly, but that didn’t stop droves of participants from coming out to do the 3.1 miles.  Equally as impressive: there were tons of police and volunteers supporting the nearly 10,000 runners and walkers.

For the second year in a row, we brought our little dog along, too.  Winnie (a Jack Russell, Dachshund, Bichon mix) runs with me regularly, so she’s totally up for a 5k.  Still, it’s funny to see the surprised looks on people’s faces as she bounds past them on her tiny legs.  photo-4

Finishing in 33 minutes isn’t great…but running with 3 kids and a dog slows a girl down (plus, we stopped for pictures)!  SOME Trot for Hunger race results can be found here.  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!
