There is a super fun 5k in our neighborhood every May. It is a scholarship run in memory of a cute little girl called Elle, that was killed in an auto accident a few years back. Her incredible family started this scholarship program in her memory. It is well attended, and all sorts of cool. This year, my oldest and I ran in it. She did the 1 mile race in her age group and rocked it I must say. I ran the 5k with my great friend. It was cool morning. After the race, and awards and everything, they handed out pink and white balloons to all the kids and we let them go all at once. It was very cool. This family has turned their own personal tragedy into something amazing. It was fun to be a part of it, and we look forward to next year.
