7th Annual Liz Hurley Ribbon Run – Part One

This past weekend was the 7th Annual Liz Hurley Ribbon Run benefiting the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund at Huntsville Hospital Foundation. Jackie and I did the Ribbon Run last year and decided to do it again this year. Jackie’s mom, Jan, was also planning to participate and asked us to join the team she was on, Team Christina (more on this later).

Friday night was the pre-race spaghetti dinner at Huntsville Middle School and we all attended. The dinner was catered by Carrabba’s and was really good. They had ziti (with or without meat), Caesar salad, bread, and brownies and cookies for dessert. We all arrived a little bit after 5:00 and there were not a ton of people there yet, but as we were leaving there were a lot of people coming in so I would say we ate at just the right time.

Troy had red punch, can you tell?

After we ate, we went outside and looked at the luminaries. You could buy a pink bag for a luminary for a loved one who has battled breast cancer. Troy and Ashlyn got two bags for their Auntie Michelle.

We ran into some friends that we knew from church and talked to them for a while and then Jackie and I went over and had our picture taken by a pink tractor. There was a little boy named Steven sitting/playing on the tractor and he wasn’t too keen about getting down so we told his mom he could stay in the picture.

It was a nice evening spent with good friends and good food, which is always an excellent combination.

Up next… race day!

I enjoyed the evening. It is always fun when you are around plus I also enjoyed the excitement coming from all the people. There was a lot of energy and you could feel it.
Love you,
