This morning Niki picked me up at 6:10a.m. We have talked about doing this for several years, but were finally able to participate. Niki has a really good friend that continues to struggle with the effects of breast cancer and we have known several friends over the years that have dealt with it as well. I figure even without having a history of it in our family, we do have a history of women and that is enough for me. With 5 daughters and 3 sisters odds are someone will get it. We took Trax up to the Gateway and did the Race for the Cure. Wow!!!! Breast Cancer survivors had dark pink t-shirts and the supporters got the white ones. And then there were teams that had their own shirts that represented who they were there for. We were able to write names of individuals on a paper and on one side it said "In memory" and the other it said "In celebration". It was so touching to see so many come together for this cause. And this is only 1 city and 1 type of cancer. Hard to comprehend how cancer affects so many people. We had a lot of fun and were really absorbing our first 5K and definitely plan on more. Being new to this means that we missed out on all of the freebies that the early birds got, but we'll know for next year!!!! Afterward, we enjoyed going to Einstein's Bagels and finished it off with the Holy Cow. How much better can a Sat. get? Life is good and I am grateful for my health.
