Running in Pink To Cure Cancer..


This past weekend in Dallas was the Race for the cure for breast cancer awareness! Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m. I met one of my friends from college, Andrea Walker, and headed down to North Park Mall. Over 26,000 people gathered for either the 1 mile fun run or the 5k race. There were all ages of men, woman, dogs and children.

Reunited..and it was so much fun!

So many survivors with so many different backgrounds. It was a bitter sweet feeling to see the support from so many thousands of people. 

We FINISHED!! It was Andrea's 1st 5K!
Sweaty after running and having to dodge people, trees, and baby strollers! We definitely went for the freebies afterwards; water bottles, apples, bananas, nail files, and bracelets! 
Next year we plan to recruit more people and hopefully form our own team! Starting the tradition through the EEE's we have successfully supported Race for the Cure for 5 years!  It was such a great feeling for an important cause!
