This morning Justin and I woke up and ran Race for the Cure along with 50,000 others from Central Ohio.
This year we ran in celebration for:
- My Aunt Cami
- Justin's Mom, Tonya
- My 2nd grade teacher, Debbie U
- My good friends mom, Barb B
- Justin's, Aunt Carolyn
I get emotional every time we do race for the cure, especially at the beginning of the race, whenever I see a survivor tee-shirt, every time we pass a band who got up early to preform along the race course, but the thing that gets me the most every year is all of the Harley Davidson riders who come down and line the last part of the race... they rev their engines and it is so nice to realize that there are supporters of all walks of life who are fighting to find a cure for breast cancer (sorry i took the picture while running)
here is a picture of all the people crossing the finish line
and Justin and I at the end of the race. I was proud of Justin, he finished the race in 25 minutes and I wasn't too far behind him, and i crossed the finish line in 30 minute (which I will take because I am the worlds slowest runner!)
I hope you take a chance to participate in a Race for the Cure, it is very powerful. I am very proud to be able to participate in the 3rd largest one here in Columbus.
I hope you had a wonderful Saturday morning, I know I sure did!
