300+ girls all cheering each other on as they run the out and back trail course. For every mile they ran they got a necklace of beads, everyone's race bib was #1 and all the girls were cheered as they finished and were given medals.
The spirit of these races always make me cry - but having my daughter run it, on the first hot day, with a cast, yeah, it was a tearjerker. One of my running buddies came and ran it with my daughter and I and that meant the world to me, too. She was surrounded by amazing women runners cheering for her beautiful heart. Epic.
