In other news, Outrun CF is this Saturday! I've got my t-shirt which is orange... Go Vols! :) And I am ready to run. I will be posting pictures from Saturday. It's not too late to join in! Here is a refresher on what it's all about:
The first Out Run CF Virtual Race was a huge success. Runners and walkers from all over the world came together with one thing in mind, to Out Run Cystic Fibrosis! This fall, on October 1, 2011, we plan to do it again. The Rock CF Foundation and CysticLife are joining forces, once again, to bring you another Out Run CF Virtual Race.
In case you missed out last time, or need a refresher, here is how it works. Anyone and everyone is invited to participate: Fibros, Cysters, parents, spouses, friends, extended family, you name it! Participants will find a route near their house. Then on October 1, 2011, EVERYONE will lace up their sneakers and hit the pavement in their Out Run CF shirt (Each registrant will receive a t-shirt unique to this fall’s race from us in the mail).
No distance is too long, or too short. YOU pick YOUR mileage. 1 mile? 5K? 10K? 10 miles? Half Marathon? Marathon? It’s up to you! Nothing is too fast or too slow YOU pick YOUR speed. We just want to get the entire CF community out of their houses and into their running shoes on the same day, for the same cause.
Registrants can blog about their training, ask questions, and share tips on CysticLife.org. We want the entire site to be plastered with talk of exercise, running, and encouragement. On race day, we want people to post their times and their experiences. Let’s make this Virtual Race even BIGGER than the first one! Let’s make it the biggest race the community, and the world, has ever seen!!
So here again are the hard facts:
What: Outrun CF Virtual Race held by Rock CF Foundation and CysticLife
When: October 1, 2011
Why: Because anyone can run—whether it’s for a minute or a marathon! Together we can Out Run CF.

On Sunday, Knoxville puts on a huge fireworks show called Boomsday, and it is always awesome! Eldon and I go every year with his family, but this year was a little different due to the weather. We met up for dinner and spent some time with them, but then we went to sit in the rain to watch the show without them. A few friends and my sister sat with us, and it turned out to be a great night even with the rain. Here's a little video of the fireworks set to one of my favorites!
