Today was the day to wear PINK here in Central New York!
As I’ve said before this is always one of my favorite races of the year! The Koman race for the Cure! It’s inspiring to see the survivors running in their bright pink shirts! It’s really something to be seen! Such a great community vibe and soooo many people!
The starting line: secretly I want to know who has to build this balloon arch and make sure it doesn’t fly away?
The vendor booths. There were tons of great goodies, at race. I find I never really take the goods that are offered.
I never know where to put them? I can’t run with them and do I want to walk all the way back to my car? I need to get a running posse. You know a crowd of non-runners who follow me to races so I can collect swag for them to carry – they could cheer for me along the way too! That would be EPIC! I need to push this concept with the husband.
Today I ran in memory of a neighbor. She was the most uplifting person you would ever meet all while she battled. She even found the time to send me the most beautiful handwritten letter and gift when my first son was born with complications. Even though I’m not sure I ever fully expressed to her in person how much her gift meant to me when I run this race I like to think it’s a small way of saying thank you.
People beginning to line up at the gate:
I ran today with Amanda My best friend in the WHOLE world! While it was a hot and sticky one I actually finished with one of my best net times ever for this course 35:43 How, I have absolutely no idea? It felt like the world’s slowest and most painful run ever. The course is completely flat asphalt with no shade, not my favorite. Of Course I had no camera to take a photo of the two of us but we crossed the line together!
How was your Saturday?
