Runs/Walks in Kansas City: Run for Purple Peace September 12, 2015


Before I was the homeschooling writer mom of 5, I used to love to walk all the time as a stress reliever and to stay in shape. Walking is something you can do as a parent anytime, but now that my youngest is 5 and my oldest is 14, it's a lot easier for me to fit in time for my own fitness. Over the winter I walked some at the gym on the treadmill and track. Now I can walk the neighborhood or the field at the school by my house. I'm not a jogger or a runner yet  ... but might be someday! For now I walk in my OOFOS sandals because they are the most comfy thing I have ever worn and work perfectly for summertime.

What: Run for Purple Peace

When: Saturday, September 12, 2015 at 8 a.m.

Where: Unity Village, Lee's Summit, MO

Purple Peace Foundation was founded in March 2012, in memory of Amanda Brady. It is the mission of  our Foundation to raise awareness about epilepsy and provide support to those living with epilepsy. It is our goal to raise funds in order to provide tools which may improve the quality of life for someone living with epilepsy, to support epilepsy research, and to increase awareness and education about epilepsy.

Fun facts: my uncle used to coach track at a high school in Lee's Summit for many years and my dad has taken up jogging ... it's in my blood!

P.S. I get my info from the fabulous KC Running Company website.

When you're all done, you'll be hungry! Grab a copy of my Tater Tot Casserole Cookbook and whip up a batch of happiness for dinner!
