Why I Run to the Sun
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!
It’s great being a part of a community of people who push themselves mentally and physically while striving to make a real difference.
There is so much to love about this event! The camaraderie! Feeling of accomplishment! Helping end Batten!
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.
Having the cards and pictures for the kids with Batten Disease at the station was great, and we loved the stickers and signs with the inspirational quotes! The views are amazing, and it really is an incredible event!
The transition points were “over the top”. The generosity of the people and their spots was the most encouraging and uplifting thing I have experienced in a long time.
What an awe-inspiring event and super fun exchange station. We are already looking forward to participating again next year!
It was such an amazing experience that I have not stopped talking about! I will for sure be back next year.
What a unique event. I love running through night in the Hill Country.
