"If you run, you are a runner. It doesn't matter how fast or how far. It doesn't matter if today is your first day or if you've been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run."
"The advice I have for beginners is the same philosophy that I have for runners of all levels of experience and ability -- consistency, a sane approach, moderation and making your running an enjoyable, rather than dreaded, part of your life." -Bill Rodgers
Less than 3 weeks until the brAVERY run! I am so excited!
We are still looking for sponsors! $200 gets your business name on the shirt! Sponsors will also be able to provide fliers, coupons, or even just business cards that will be provided to all of the participants! (right now that means we will be mailing these to 13 different states and to a Providence of Canada) If you would like your business name on the back of the shirt you need to contact us before August 1st! We will be providing Blue Ribbon with the shirt order on August 1st.
We started our run "take a picture we will need a sign or volunteer here" and run again at 9:00AM ! Let me tell you I am so glad we are starting the race at 7:30AM because the sun started coming out in full force!
Runners, I think you will be able to get some pretty good times on this course!
There are a few minor hills, but not killer hills!
We will be crossing through a few intersections, but we will have volunteers out there to monitor them and they will be able to point you in the right direction!
Overall, we were pretty excited about the course!
Questions can be directed to Amber at 214.883.0085 or email@example.com

Avery: "Please remember, while I'm no longer physically here, I live on through each of you. So please continue sharing my story and the stories of ALL my friends with SMA who still need your help! And please know, whether you're telling my story to bring forth SMA awareness or making donations to fund a cure, you are helping!
SO PLEASE DON'T STOP NOW!"
brAVERY run route!
After several failed attempts to upload the picture of the route, I will just post a link to a site where you can find the route HERE
This site is also a great place to be able to create your own route if you are participating in the virtual run!
Brooke and I will be running/walking the route soon! We will create a list of volunteers that we will need for the race and have a sign up sheet at Anytime Fitness in Fredericksburg.
We have just over a month until the race!!!! Be sure and share Avery's story with everyone you know!

Here is a little up date with where we are on everything with the brAVERY run:
The virtual run now has 12 different US States registered and we have people from Canada registered as well! How awesome would it be if we got people from all 50 states to register!!
The medals have been ordered and they are going to look AMAZING! I will post a picture when we get them in!
We are still waiting to place the official brAVERY run shirts until we finalize all of our sponsors. If you have been thinking about sponsoring it is not too late. Get your information to us by the end of the month so we can put your business name on the back of the official event shirts!
Speaking of sponsors, we do need more! Our sponsors allow us to make this the best race ever! We specifically need sponsors to help us purchase post race snacks and port-a-potties! From there all other sponsorships will help us raise EVEN MORE money to finding a cure!
Thanks for all of your help! Don't forget to register online!
