Saturday- Judges Run 5k with family and friends
My husband was contacted by the director of the Judges Run to DJ the event. All the race proceeds go to the Anne Stirba Cancer Foundation(the directors wife, Anne Stirba, passed away from breast cancer) so Josh said he’d love to DJ the event for exchange of a couple of race bibs for me and some friends.
I invited my MIL Lee Ann, 2 SIL’s Alisha and Whitney, my friend Vanessa, and my sister Neeley. My MIL and SIL’s walked the race together pushing a stroller, and Vanessa, Neeley, and I ran it.
My sister has been running awhile now, but this was her first race. She did so awesome and ran a lot faster than her training on the treadmill, I am so proud of her! It’s moments like yesterday that make me so grateful for running. I loved watching my friends and family push themselves to new limits.
The course was beautiful, but through a lot of woods and uneven surfaces. The course was pretty hilly too, the finish was even at the top of a hill!
Vanessa ended up cruising on and finishing ahead of us and doing great. Neeley and I were able to run the whole race step by step next to each other. It was so fun to run with my sister and I hope she wants to run with me again!

After the race their was a pancake, doughnut, bagel breakfast for all the participants and their families. It was delicious and the music was great too;)
I would definitely recommend this race for whoever is local(it was held in Sugar House). The shirts are so cute!
