Welcome friends and family of Alex and Dane!

He did it! He did it!

Alex RAN his first race this am! 
He ran the whole way and finished!
  I guess some of his PT's had bets whether or not he would even finish.  AND he did!!!  I ran it with him but I cheated, I only did "the loop" once and then I cut through a parking lot so that I could be with Alex when he crossed the Finish Line (I'm soooo out of shape, but hey I ran about 2.8 miles).
Watching him run was SUCH an inspiration. Now if his hands and fingers would catch up with his feet and legs he would be "perfect".

We didn't get to meet Megan though, she was put back in the hospital Friday night.  We are sad for her and I feel for her mom.  We wish her the best and will continue to pray and support her.

  1. Did anyone take any video?! I am so envious, however I feel inspired. I think I'll put on my "running" shoes and see if I can walk down to the end of the block and back. That certainly doesn't equal what you did, but it's a start! Thanks Alex - you're flippin' amazing! :)
