I could write from some many perspectives.
I could share stories about how it started.
I could write about the day itself. The happy faces. The amazing food. The talented band. The generous donations. The beautiful weather. The memories shared of Brittany. I could go on forever...
I could write about how much work and heart Kristin Matthews and the Raymond family put into planning the event.
I could write about how much I want to cry when I think about all of the people who donated and supported the cause.
I could write about how amazing my team was during the softball benefit; a team that started as friends – some strangers – and transformed into a family.
I could also write about how I haven't ever been so sore in my life...and I couldn't run for a whole week afterwards because my muscles refused to move. But it was good to know I wasn't alone:
