Race 6 complete

This weekend was the Alive & Running race in Dunkerton that my family does in memory of Kirk.  We were scared that we were going to get rained out but the heavens were on our side and it was a beautiful day for a race.  Friday night was the lantern ceremony which is such an emotional time.  It's wonderful to spend the night with my family but so hard to try to find the words to fit on a lantern and send up to the sky. My parents made it down with all of us for the lantern ceremony but weren't able to stay for the race on Saturday.

Saturday we had a good group racing. Uncle Mark, Marilyn, Lars, Rachael, Paige, Uncle Mike and myself. It was really nice to be able to walk alongside Paige and talk about losing Kirk.  We've never had the time to sit down and do that in four years.  Not really talk about it like we did on Saturday. It was a nice way to help the healing.  I couldn't think of a better group to do it with. Hopefully next year we can get even more family out there with us to celebrate Kirk's life again.
