Why I Run to the Sun
It was an amazing experience. The exchange stations were fun and motivating. Running under the stars was an unforgettable memory.
This past weekend is one I look forward to every year. I feel especially proud because I am one of the few that can say I’ve run it every year since the beginning. Without fail, I have cried at the end of my second leg every time because I’m done, and because I’m loving every minute of the night.
As I wearily began to trudge up the first hill I could see the dawn breaking and something overtook my body that I cannot explain. I flew those last few miles faster then I have ever run for my sweet Christiane!
It was really special. It may have been because the kids on the course were SO ADORABLE! Or could it have been the most AMAZING exchange points ever? I was blown away. That just made it so special. What a wonderful tradition. I’m still reeling from it.
The unity of everyone working towards a common goal was inspiring!
We love the way people come together to support a great cause and have a blast doing it!
There is so much to love about this event! The camaraderie! Feeling of accomplishment! Helping end Batten!
The first few exchange stations were great; it was awesome having all of those kids there! The atmosphere at the run is so positive, and we enjoy it so much.
What an awe-inspiring event and super fun exchange station. We are already looking forward to participating again next year!
