5K on a Saturday

Have you ever been so proud of someone that you almost can’t formulate the word to express just how much? That’s where I’m at. My husband ran his first 5K a couple of weeks ago, benefitting RAINN – the organization for the National Sexual Assault hotline. He was very active on social media on the months leading up to the event. He posted helpful resources for both survivors and family/friends of survivors. He shared stories that really resonated with him and made it a point to be a leaning shoulder for anyone who may need it. I admire his strength and openness on a topic that many choose to ignore. He trained a few weeks for the race and it definitely paid off! He finished his 5K in 13th place at 24:50. It was really awesome to see people come together to support victims of sexual assault. We are looking for other 5K’s in the DC area so if anyone knows of any coming up, let me know!
