Strolling at our own pace for the cure…

Today was the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, and we participated.  The day started out cold, windy and rainy – in fact, we showed up at the site wearing lots of layers and carrying umbrellas.  We sat in traffic for so long that I missed the survivor photo.  But it stopped raining long enough for us to walk, not run, the 5K course.  It was probably just as well we got there right before the race, as we didn’t have time to be tempted by free stuff we didn’t really need.  As it was, we had lots of free food, and of course I got a medal and a carnation.  What am I going to do with all these medals?  Maybe someday I’ll put them all on and pretend I’m Mark Spitz 🙂 But seriously, I am overwhelmed by the amazing energy flowing our way from all the zillion volunteers, sponsors, and other survivors.  It was really something to be in the crowd of almost 12,000 people who were all happy and positive.  We had a great time.

    That’s really great that you participated.
    I think you need to start a trophy room. maybe have a lounge chair to lay in as you bask in your own glory. not sure of what music you should pipe in.
    I’m doing a 5k walk next weekend and wonder if Kobie and I will make it. He likes to stop and smell the flowers, trees, dirt, you name it 🙂
