This morning, my 19 year old son joined me to run/walk the Magnolia Run for Epilepsy. I have done this race twice before and, in fact, I am pretty sure it's my 5K PR race. But this year, I have the half marathon tomorrow so I didn't want to race. But I did want to support the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia! And now that my son (who started having seizures in 2008 and if you remember the story of how I got started in running you'll recall that it was the onset of his seizures and the resulting diagnosis that opened the door for me) is no long working 3rd shift and can actually have a real life, I decided that I would see if he wanted to come with me! And he did!

Individuals with Epilepsy were given special purple shirts to wear during the race. It was so neat to look around and see all of the shirts! The front was pretty with the purple and green - but the back was simply FANTASTIC!
|LOVE LOVE LOVE this!|
Austin chose IHOP for some post-race refueling and then we came home and got cleaned up and took the traditional race shirt picture:
