Anne’s Reindeer Fun Run Story

I decided to take a shot at the 75-79 age group record in the 12k run, “The 12Ks of Christmas” on December 6, 2014 because it looked like a really fun event, with those in costumes making it feel festive and lively. I took a big chance on this one because I’m running the Dallas Marathon the following Sunday, December 14, with my son David and my Granddaughter Rachel, which will be our 9th three-ma...

In September of 2013, I decided, on a whim, to start running, and to en...

Megan’s Reindeer Fun Run Story

Starting in 2000, I got hooked on running.  I did the Chicago Marathon, a number of half marathons, and even more 5K and 10Ks.  I loved it!  Then I got into the triathlon world and pushed my body (in between getting married and having kids) to do more and more.

Susan’s Reindeer Fun Run Story

Crossing the finish line
My story... oh my. June 26, 2008 at about 9:36am, while on a mission trip in South Carolina with the youth from Pinehurst United Methodist Church, I climbed a ladder and was going to transfer onto scaffolding to paint the eaves of the house we were working on, but the transfer did not go according to plan and I fell to the ground.  Actually ended up on my bottom and looked out at my right leg a...
