Race for a Cure... goal completed!!
We did it!! Ashley and I ran in the Race for a Cure this Saturday and it was AWESOME!!! There were over 10,000 runners - and thousands more cheering us on. We completed our 5k run in 35 minutes - we were so proud of us. Did I mention we are not natural born runners? This was our very first race and now we are hooked. The adrenalin rush was amazing - I felt like doing a little touchdown dance at the finish line. This race can also be so emotional seeing all of the breast cancer survivors walking around in their pink shirts - seeing the memorial signs for so many other women. The statistic is 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Very scary and very real to lots of families.
After the race we were treated with free Panera Bread, Starbucks coffee, and yogurt. This race knows me - all my favorite things! To top off my day I won a gift card to Academy Sports - they picked my number out of 10,000 other participants.... what are the chances?? Great day - Great run - Ran with purpose - With my Best friend beside me! You can't get any better than that. Put it on your calendar now and join us next October.
