Trolley Run 2010

Kansas City's Annual Trolley Run benefits CCVI (The Children's Center for the Visually Impaired). RJ was a part of their infant program and also attended preschool there. This is their biggest fundraiser. One of RJ's friends and old classmate C still attends and had her own 'team' for this event. RJ and I registered with the intent of walking the four miles. At the start I decided to run as far as I could and then walk the remainder. I RAN ALL FOUR MILES! RJ really kept me going because as I was pushing him he kept signing "I want" and then pointing ahead of him. I took this to mean that he wanted me to keep running. It's such a feeling of accomplishment and a great mother/son experience. Look out Team Hoyt, here comes Team Jones!
