Last year I walked a 10k for Autism in Albuquerque NM. That's the closest one to me. I didn't get to go this year because it's 4 1/2 hours away and I didn't have the funds. My 4 year old grandson has something wrong that the experts thought might be autism but ruled it out later. They are still trying to find out what is wrong. But autism has a special place in my heart. Awesome motivator for you! I would also like to run in some of the military runs as those also have a special place but there are none close to me except for the Bataan Death March Memorial that I've walked the 15 mile course last year and this year. They also have a 26.2 mile course. Next year I hope to be able to run the 15 mile instead of walk it.

I'll be running in the Marine Corps 10K in October with the OAR team.

Other races I'm doing are: womens distance festival 5K in July, Navy 5 miler in Sept.

I am trying to work my way up to a half...tho I felt like such a poser doing the 8k I don't know how I'll do anything longer! (I started with the Semper Fred 5K in May...and they run the Marine corps historic half at the same time.. I'm thinking of that one for next year.)

I'd love to meet up with another sparker and warrior mom! :)

Hey there, My 10yr old son is on the spectrum as well. I signed up to run for OAR (organization for Autism research) on his behalf..so I do run for him! Although for him the big thing about any races I do is "Do we get to stay in a hotel room?" (He LOVES hotels..lol)

*cheers*

I love what you are doing. Your son benefits in several ways, having a Mom who is physically so much stronger and reaps all the emotional benefits of running is a huge thing in itself.
Cheers,
Birgit

That's awesome that you are running for your son! You will have to let me know how those races go. I'm think of doing the VA Beach race one day. Seriously considering Philly next year.

Hi All,

I have been running for over a year. It all started with a 5K for Autism Awareness in honor of my son, Alexander. I really loved it so much that I moved to a 10K then to a 10 miler. Now I am signed up for 2 half marathons- the RnR VA Beach on 9/4 and the Philly Half on 11/20. I am also running the Army Ten Miler with my husband. I am running all the races for the Run For Autism Team. My son has become such an inspiration for me and has made me stronger. I hope everyone does well in your races and can find what really motivates them- I know I have found mine!
Happy Running! :)
