An update on my cousin Christine that passed away suddenly last month at the age of 45. She was preparing to run the Phoenix Marathon this weekend. To celebrate her and her life, 26 members of the family and friends will each be running 1 mile of the marathon for her. They will have on shirts that say “Running for Christine.” Her husband gets to run the last mile for her with more family and friends waiting at the finish line.
This is such a sweet gesture. And it makes me want to pack my bags for Phoenix this weekend to join in this second celebration of her life.
