This is a blog for my daughter Scarlett. She was born with a complex congenital heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot with Pulmonary Atresia. She is my little hero.

Ethan's Run Today

This morning Violet, Scarlett and I woke up and drove 40 miles to east Mesa to attend "Ethan's Run Hope For Heart Defects". There was quite a good turn out. I was happy to see so many people there braving the brisk weather to support my friend Heidi and the cause in general.

I was suprised that Heidi actually ran in the 10K! (amazing woman...). Many of the heartmoms walked the 1-mile "fun run". Me and two other heartmoms just walked the 1 mile fun-run.... and truthfully we kinda cheated a little and probably only walked half a mile (shhh! don't tell).  It was a lot of fun though. and thank God the weather was agreeable [meaning it didn't rain until the event was almost over!]

ABC 15 [local news channel] interviewed Heidi on Thursday {Ethan's would-be 1st birthday}, and it aired on Friday. Here is a link to the video and the story:

Here are some pics I took this morning after the race before the weather took a turn for the worse.


It was great to see so many familiar faces and see the heartbabies. Next week we get to do it all over again for the American Heart Association's annual "Heart Walk" which will take place next Saturday at Tempe Town Lake.
