Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K

Last weekend, Sarah and I participated in the Race for the Cure in downtown St Louis.  Over 64,000 people were downtown to race or to walk the 5K in support of raising money and awareness to fight and find a cure for breast cancer.  Over 4,900 breast cancer survivors participated, and it was so moving everytime a woman in a bright pink shirt with bold SURVIVOR letters written across her back ran by.

I would assume we were ahead of this part of the pack as we ran the entire thing (well, ok, you caught me, we walked on one of the hills that was about 1/10 of a mile, but ran all the rest.....for real!), but you can see that it was jam-packed with so many fighters and supporters. 

 love it

We ended up coming across the finish in 35 minutes, which for this being my first ever 5K....and I "trained" a total of 3 days beforehand (ha), I was pleased with it.  Sarah could have gone faster, but we also enjoyed the run without murdering ourselves to the finish.  And we happily treated ourselves to a Starbucks afterwards! :-)  I'll definitely be participating again next year!
