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!
