LaughFest 2013 kicked off last night, March 7th in Rosa Parks Circle. Over 1,500 people from all over West Michigan came downtown to help break an odd world record. The record they were trying to beat was the most people with fake mustaches in one area at one time.

Less than three months until Grand Rapids makes history with the inaugural Gazelle Girl Half Marathon and 5k on April 13, 2013. The event marks the 40th anniversary of Title IX, the law that made discrimination between men’s and women’s educational programs illegal. Title IX had its largest impact by expanding female sports at the high school and collegiate level.
I watched men play baseball, football and golf. I watched boys wrestle, dive, swim, run and play soccer. We girls had the Girls’ Athletic Association. It met once a week and some 200 girls tried to participate in a single game of baseball, or take turns on the tumbling mats or the trampoline, or play one game of basketball or volleyball. Seriously? Yep, seriously. We played baseball on the asphalt parking lot because the boys had the grass field.
My first attempt at completing a running event was training for the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital Grand Rapids Kids Marathon in 2011. I had always despised running, but I was excited to complete this training with my four-year-old daughter. The sad part? I could not even run a mile without stopping. I watched my daughter’s energy and excitement during our run practices, and I was so winded and jealous. What happened to the competitive cheerleader and very active woman I used to be? Did I lose it after birthing three children? This occurrence ignited a spark in me to start my own training for a 5k. I registered to complete the 5k race the same weekend as my daughter’s Kids Marathon.
To say that running saved my life is, well, an understatement.
In July 2009, I weighed 271 pounds and was well on my way to any number of health problems: diabetes, heart disease, you name it. What’s more, this “I-love-kids” woman suffered from very irregular periods and there was a good chance that she might never have kids of her own. I was sad. And felt like so much was out of my control.
