Run for the Trees for the Amazon Foundation

Along with our quest to really "experience" Los Angeles, we have also decided to participate in Runs/Walk in the area to support good causes and to get back in shape.  Our first event that we signed up for was the 5K Run for the Trees for the Amazon Foundation.

The Amazon Foundation was established in 2009 to acquire and to preserve large tracts of the Amazon rain forest in their natural state in order to maintain its ecological function, biodiversity, and climatologic function and to protect the region's long-term ecological viability and to create global awareness for the cause via marketing campaigns and charitable events.  No, I did not come up with that sentence, it is their mission statement and on their website.

Overall, it was a great experience, and I say "great" loosely because I spent the rest of the day tired, sore, and napping in bed while Lucas was laying on the couch in his own pain.  Hahaha.
