K's for Keegan in 2014

The Lord knows I have plenty of Christmas photos and happenings to catch up on here, but first, something very important...our first K's for Keegan update for 2014!

2013 was full of ups and downs for me personally, as far as running goes, and unfortunately, we didn't end up having any big fundraising K's for Keegan races.  I did complete all 13 of my races that I pledged to run in 2013.  The Dallas Marathon was supposed to have been my last race, so instead I had to quickly sign up for a virtual race to fit in my last one.  The same group is hosting a 14 in 2014 challenge, but I'm not in a big rush to push for that at this point.

In order to help our K's for Keegan team move along though, I'm going to try something new for this year.  I am hoping to have some more actual K's for Keegan registered teams this year for a few races.  However, I will also post about any additional races I plan on participating in where others may want to join in.  Most of these races won't have an option to register as a team, but anyone who wants to come out, wear their team shirt, and walk or run will be welcome.  The more the merrier!  Contact me before any of these races if you plan on coming out, and if nothing else, we can snap a "team picture" before the race!  As you know, I'll be at the Houston Marathon on January 19 and the Cowtown Marathon in Fort Worth on February 23.  I'll also be running the Hot Chocolate 15k on February 8; there's a 5k there, too.

Without further ado, announcing our first official K's for Keegan team race of 2014:

the Firefly Run 5K on March 29th!

A few of us did this race last year, and it was really fun.  It's a night-time, illuminated race with as much glow-in-the-dark stuff you can manage.  How fun is that?!  It's just down the street from our house, and the proceeds benefit Children's Medical Center Dallas, where Keegan receives most of his care.  We would love to have a big team this year, so come on out to run or walk with us!

Here's the link to our team page: https://fundraising.active.com/fundraiser/K_sforKeegan

To register, click the green button on the left hand side of the page of the link above.  Choose "team registration", timed or untimed, your choice.  Until January 1, you can get early registration prices, and use the code LASTCHANCE30 to get an additional $5 off.  Even better, if we rustle up 25 people to register before January 1, we will be entered to win a VIP package with our own tent, parking, and other perks!

So don't wait!  Register today!  We can't wait for you to join us in celebrating Keegan, raising money for Children's, and spreading awareness for organ donation.  Let me know if you still need a K's for Keegan tshirt too!  And if you can't join us, any donation to our team would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you, friends!  Here's to 2014!!
