Remember June 2014 in Minneapolis? It rained EVERY SINGLE DAY. I'm talking torrential downpours, floods, the whole 9 yards. I know a lot of you are still overcoming your feelings about all the standing water in town, so I'll move on :)
On June 7, the Liz Logelin Foundation hosted it's annual Run, Walk, Hope 5K + 10K race. In one of a thousand downpours. It was a fabulously wet adventure had by all and the most memorable race so far!
A cause that I sort of stumbled upon back in 2011, the LLF provides grants to widows and widowers with young families and offers resources and support for those grieving loss. I've been so blessed to be able to document past races for the LLF HERE and HERE. Over the last three years, Matt, Lindsay and so many involved in this organization have become friends. I'm grateful for their friendship, support of my business and the belief they have in the importance of helping people. Plain and simple? They're awesome.
If you want to learn more, go to the website and buy a ticket for the gala this fall on September 20th. It will be at the Target Field Metropolitan Club for the 2nd year in a row - I can't wait to see my photos on the JumboTron again!
I adore this photo of Maddy and Matt - so classic! Maddy donned in her running gear of t-shirt, shorts and shoes. Matt was clearly unprepared, raincoat, wool pants and winter boots. But Maddy? That girl can run. She's honestly my hero.
