Race for the Cure
I ran my first race this weekend - a 5K. It was amazing. First, I got to run it with one of my best friends (okay, so we ran almost the entire thing), second, it was for a great cause that hit close to home this year when one of my staff was diagnosed at 38 (and is now a survivor - yeah!!!), and third, it was an unbelievable November day. There were 24,000+ participants this year. I raised over $400 and hope to do better next year. I may even go for the timed run then too. With all the medical advances we see each year, we simply must find a way to stop this disease.
