I've wanted to get a few more races in this fall before the snow starts to fly and I'm trapped inside for months on end. I SO was excited when my bestie wanted to do a local 5k that benefited women who can't afford breast cancer screenings and treatment. Last weekend we ran that 5k together and it was awesome! We arrived bright and early, I had hoped to run the 5k with Liam in the stroller but he had started to get a cold and it was only 25 degreed that morning....no race for little Liam. There were 1,100 women almost all of whom were dressed up, Bestie and I were Batman and Superman respectively. We had a good time considering she recently had jaw surgery and currently had a cold (final time 34:15). After the race we took our turn in the photo booth, got some snacks and just hung around. What a lovely Saturday morning!
next charitable 5k I have planned is in chilly November and it actually
put on by the nurses from the Oncology Center I had to visit for my Autoimmune Disease. The proceeds go to different types of cancer treatment etc. It feels good to go running but it feels even better knowing the ~$25 registration fee is going to a good cause.
Now if I could just kick this cold and fit in a good run this weekend (probably not going to happen).
