Marmet 5k Fun Run Walk

Over Father's Day weekend, my brother Drew put on his Team G Shock shirt and ran the Marmet 5k Fun Run Walk in WV! He is gearing up for the Firecracker 5k with Dad over the 4th of July, so a practice run was in order! 

Since we've been out of commission for a little while, we really appreciated him taking one for Team G Shock to get out there! And because I knew about it ahead of time, I made sure he got some pictures!

Here are his results:

And of course, some photos!

Ready to run!

So proud of Drew for helping out Team G Shock, and as always, if you are able to donate to the cause, we appreciate it! We're on our way to $10,000, but need your help to get there! GOOOOO G SHOCK!

Next Race!

Now that Nate is back on his feet, we've got another race on the calendar! We will be running the Gay 5k next Saturday at our favorite course, Shelby Park! The race benefits OutCentral Greater Nashville's LGBT Center, and we're excited to get back to racing!

The race will be at 7:30am next Saturday, and updates will follow after that! Fingers crossed I can keep up with Nate & his new back!

Good News!

We have gotten some GREAT news in the last couple of weeks, and we wanted to share it here, especially since it relates to Team G Shock in one way or another!

As most of you know, Nate has been having back issues for a long time now (over 2 years!), and he's just been fighting through it to continue living life and running races. Well, in April, he finally got surgery to hopefully correct the issue, and we have kept our fingers and toes crossed since then that it would work. Well, after 8 long weeks of taking it very easy, and following doctors orders, he started to feel relief. And last week, at a follow-up appointment with his surgeon, he got the ALL CLEAR! :) That means he can run, workout, and live life pain-free (finally!). He went for a run the very next morning, and has been on a few since then. We're excited that he's feeling good, and that he can get back on his feet!

On the same day, my Dad got news that he was also, ALL CLEAR! No evidence of disease, and his doctor said to keep doing whatever it is that he is doing, because everything looks great! We are overjoyed to know that the treatment is still working, even years after he finished.

Team G Shock is back up and running, and we couldn't be happier! Keep an eye out for a race announcement soon, and for updates on the race that Drew ran over Father's Day!

A shot of Nate, me & Dad from our very first race! We're back!

Happy Father's Day

Since we started Team G Shock because of my Dad, we couldn't miss the chance to wish our favorite Dads a Happy Father's Day! Wish we could be with all of you, but we hope you all have a wonderful day! We love you all!

(Sidenote: he ran a 5k this morning, details coming soon!)

Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there! Hope you all have the best day!

Annnnnd We're Back!

As mentioned in a post last month, Nate had back surgery in April which took him out of commission for a bit. We held off on more races because we wanted to be able to do them together, and he needed some time to recover. 

Today was officially his 8 week (well, more like 9) follow-up, and he got the all clear!! He is really excited to be able to run and workout again, and I am excited to run with him. We'll have to get some races on the calendar soon! 

In the meantime, we won't be making our normal trek to the beach for the 4th of July, but our family will, and Dad and Drew will be running our favorite race -The Firecracker 5k! I will be sure to get some good photos and all the details to post here!
