I wanted to personally welcome Theresa Jackson from the east coast to the Race For Grief event in 2015. I was touched by her email to me and asked to share it with you. My heart breaks for her not being able to be a mother but I am so thrilled to see her breaking out of her cocoon to be the best version of herself. So inspiring! Thank you for sharing Theresa! I look forward to meeting you on Memorial Day to honor your babies with us!

Dear Coach Lora,
I want to thank you for creating the Race for Grief. Although I am a 44 year old, non-runner, I am registered for the 10k event in May! I will be traveling from Florida and proudly running to honor my babies.
Since 1998, I’ve been consumed by what I couldn’t do…have a child. After losing 5 pregnancies, I also lost my ability to have children at the age of 28. My whole life I wanted to be a mom, nothing else seemed very important. After my hysterectomy, I existed under a veil of grief.
About 10 months ago, I realized my babies needed to be acknowledged & I was not living a life that honored them. I had formed a protective cocoon around myself, while safe, it wasn’t fulfilling. I began working with a few pregnancy loss groups, the older, over-experienced member. I found great solace in helping these younger women. I became a certified End of Life Doula to help support others through life’s final transition. Around the same time, registration opened for your event…so here I am.
While the idea of running is very intimidating, it’s time for me to break out of my cocoon. Although not a mother, I need to be the best version of me. Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of such a personal, beautiful event as part of my healing journey.
I have been running for over 30 years and have been a certified running coach for over 18 years including coaching triathlon for 10 years.

Today (November 13th) is a significant day for me. It is the day I had my first baby and she lived 5 hours and died. It is the reason that I offered the annual Race For Grief event each year. To honor my Samantha’s birthday I would like to extend a $10 discount for the 10K and 5K for today only. Just use the code HBSAM (Happy Birthday Sam). I hope you with join us on Memorial Day to honor your loved ones. Visit RaceForGrief.com to learn more.

I recently read this quote by Robin Williams. “I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up alone, it’s not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel alone.” ~ Robin Williams
I think when we feel most alone is when we don’t feel supported or cared for by others. This quote really made me reflect on my own life and the people in it. “Are they supportive of my goals?” Then I had to ask myself “Am I supportive of their goals?” “Am I supportive of my children’s goals”
For the most part I would say yes because as a coach, most people in my life come to me for support and direction, which is something I enjoy doing. But I feel it’s important for me to be around people that are positive, uplifting and encourage me to achieve my goals as well. I have learned over the years that sometimes you have to ask for support from people. So, if you aren’t getting the support you need and feel alone, try to ask for it and see what happens. You might also try to create a support system for yourself and surround yourself with people that enjoy the same things you do. That is why I love the running and triathlon community. There are hundreds of us out there supporting each other.
