This morning I ran in the Denver, Colorado version of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, a 5K race/walk and fundraising event.  This wonderful Komen organization saves lives, empowers people, ensures quality care for all and energizes science to find the cures for breast cancer.

Do I train regularly? No.  In race-ready shape? No.  But I loaded up my iPod, tied up the tennis shoes, joined the over 50,000 others and ran.  The 37 minutes (lightning speed for me!) I spent huffing and puffing through this run is nothing in comparison to what those battling cancer face

What a pleasure to support this fantastic event!

  1. How perfect to have the running shoes in pink….. and what a great size! Great job all the way around.

    Thanks Nancy!
    I love working almost monochromatic, and this fit in so timely for this race.
