Over the course of more than a year, I observed as friends supported each other through pain and those who never considered themselves runners tied up their sneakers with discipline. A team of people emerged, and they became known as the Angels with Attitude. They raised money to support the cause as they trained and encouraged each other toward the goal of the race. Eventually, race day came. It was a beautiful day and one where sadness felt more bittersweet. After the finish line had been crossed, this team shared victory, exhaustion, pride, hugs and stories of the completed journey.
As happy as I was with the way the shirt design turned out, I was overjoyed with the inspiration I gained along the way. Pondering upon the way that one persons decision from a dark place to take action influenced what took place on that sunny day has captivated my thoughts and ideas. In fact, I am thrilled to say that a fabulous art project has been born of these ideas and I look forward to sharing the completed work later on in the year.
In the meantime, find out more about Angels with Attitude and be inspired yourself.
