Mommy Dearest

My good friend Janeen Wright is the Arizona Young Mother of the Year.  Can you imagine the pressure?  But Janeen, she just takes it all in stride.  She is a fun loving marathon running mother of five.  She is a "hoot" as my grandma would say.  And she takes her crowning status seriously -- in the most casual and cheerful way possible.

Part of Janeen's mission is to make others aware of the importance of motherhood.   As a Boston Marathon alumni, Janeen thought that a 5K run in the Valley would be a great way to celebrate and cheer on the achievements and successes of women.  Thus, the Run Walk & Waddle was created.

Officially it's called the Arizona American Mothers 5k and 1 mile fun run.  You can find out more information here:  The race takes place in Gilbert, Arizona at Freestone Park on May 8th.

Go support the mothers of America on the day before Mother's Day.  Do something fun with your mother, or in honor of your mother, or because someday you will be a mother.

And Janeen.  You are my idol.
