The Turkey Trot in Memory of Kamber!



On Thanksgiving Day, I particpated in the Mesa Turkey Trot in memory of Kamber with Jen my best friend, her friends and family . I wore a shirt made in her honor. I am not a runner so I decided that I would walk it. I ened up jogging/walking the 6.2 miles that I finished in a hour and 20 mins., I felt Kamber there pushing me to finish line. I am so out of shape because I haven't started working out yet after having Brody. I was so exhausted and felt like every bone in my body aches, but I am so glad I accomplished this Trot especially for Kamber. I miss Kamber but know that she is happy with our Father in Heaven. I can't wait to see her again one day! We love you Kamber!!!!

Hi Valerie! You have such a cute family! I'll have to stay in touch with you through your blog! I'm glad I got to meet you at Jen's house. The turkey trot was a special day that's for sure. I'm so amazed with your determination to run/walk after just having a baby! My body STILL hurts!! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
