Even though she is six-months pregnant, CURB RECORDS artist JO DEE MESSINIA, an active runner, will be joining 8,000 other runners for NASHVILLE's popular 'Boulevard Bolt,' on THANKSGIVING morning. The 5-mile run along Belle Meade Boulevard helps raise $1million for non-profit agencies across MIDDLE TENNESSEE. MESSINA and her husband CHRIS DEFFENBAUGH, who are expecting a son in FEBRUARY, both plan on running.
"This will be our third year and we love it. I can't not do it this year because we had so much fun the last couple of years," said JO DEE. "When I registered, it was like, 'I'll run it or I'll walk it, depending on how I feel.' Today, I'm still running. I'm planning on running as far as I can."
