Let's Run Lucy's TD5k Together

Join me December 15, 2012 at White Rock Lake in Dallas in running or walking the free Lucy's TD5k social run and toy collection drive benefiting children at local hospitals.

Check out the video of 2010 Lucy's TD5K and just try to count all the smiles HERE.

It is a no-cost to participate, non-competitive, social event to celebrate Christmas, health, friendship, and spread the joy of the season.
  • Who: Everyone. Walkers, runners, kids, strollers, pets.
  • What: Donate an unwrapped toy and run or walk a non-competitive 5k along the beautiful west bank of White Rock Lake.
  • Where: The Filter House located White Rock Road and White Rock Creek Trail, Dallas. Map it HERE.
  • When: 9:00 AM, Saturday, December 15, 2012.
Run with me if you're in Dallas and if you're not I hope you'll be my virtual running partner by running wherever you are on the third weekend in December. It would be an honor to know we are running "together" to celebrate the Christmas season.

This year's Lucy's TD5K has a bit of extra special meaning to me personally. It will be my longest run, and first event, since being sidelined by a stroke earlier this year. After it happened, and while not knowing the extent of the injuries, I set a goal of running again by the end of this year and if possible to run, as in, an un-assisted full-out run of 5k before the new year begins. My choice is to do it at this event.

I can't think of a better time, a better place, or a better cause to celebrate a victory over stroke and begin anew with a reborn hope of the future. Tennyson lends perspective when he wrote about the one divine event, to which the whole of creation moves. To me, this is the true meaning of Christmas and I'd like to share it with you.

Stay tuned...
