Jocelyn & Felicia in Luke’s Run

With Karen working hard in preparation for the Nike Womens Half Marathon (and fundraising for Team in Training), the girls took their turn running for awareness of leukemia and lymphoma cancers.

They ran special kids races this morning at Campbell Park, as part of Luke’s Run, in honor of a young cancer victim. Luke’s family keeps his memory alive with an annual running activity (5K for adults, short laps for kids). Felicia went first and finished her single-lap race in 2 minutes and 24 seconds.

Jocelyn’s run for 9-12 year-olds was three laps, and perhaps felt a little bit longer than that when she finished it. Her time as 7:00 minutes even. We were proud of both girls, who took the run seriously and finished with strong efforts. Each participant got souvenir racers numbers and a prize pedal at the end.
