The Chevron Houston Marathon is where 26forCaleb all began. Many ask "where does the "26" come from?"
You see, prior to Caleb's passing, Kristi was scheduled to run the Chevron Houston Marathon (26.2 miles) but after a few health issues and the passing of her brother, her parents had asked her to defer her entry until the 2019 race.
Kristi was devastated, but knew it was the right decision, however, felt that there had to be a silver lining. So what we her next move? Instead of running the Chevron Houston Marathon in 2018, Kristi decided to ask 26 random friends and family on Facebook to complete a single act of Kindness in his honor. Little did she know, those random acts of kindness went viral and well surpassed 26 and spread nationwide.
Later in 2018, Kristi began re-training for the race of her lifetime and in his honor ran 26forCaleb. (pictured on the right) at the Chevron Houston Marathon surrounded by her friends/family along the race route.
