2010 Philadelphia Broad Street Run...

-10 copy

On Sunday Adam took part in the Philadelphia Broad Street Run, a 10 mile race in the city.  We had so much fun in all the craziness which come from 30,000 participants!  Adam ran this race in memory of our little guy, which made it extra special for all of us!
-1-2

Doing things in Gavin's memory is such a huge part of our healing process.  Taking the time just to remember him, in any way or form, is just special for us -- it brings an opportunity to hold him tight again, even if it's not in the physical sense.
-3-5

Madi also got to run in the kids race and according to her she was the fastest kid around!  

-8-6

Looks like everyone had a good time. I drove through Philly around 1 yesterday & thought of you. Were you up near the Franklin Institute or Art Museum at all?

Great photos! I'm amazed at how you can make it look like there weren't thousands of people milling around when the runners came in! It was nice meeting you there and made the wait time for the runners to come in go a bit faster. Good luck on your upcoming race in the Fall.
