We Did It!!!

Scott and I walked the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k this morning -- and we did not finish last! LOL That was my goal. :) I'm a little sore, and my feet hurt a little, but overall I actually feel great! I also have an amazing sense of accomplishment. I was able to walk 3.1 miles without feeling like I was going to die. My goal for next years race is to do the same one - the fun run/walk - but jog it rather than walk. :)

It was incredible to see all of the survivors. So many women, and their families, were running in celebration of surviving breast cancer. It was also heartbreaking to see all of the placards in memory of those who lost the battle and died from breast cancer. I got a little emotional as we passed all the yard signs honoring those brave women.

Scott's dear friend Dee Dee survived breast cancer, but is still battling cancer as it spread. She was only given a few months to live. We walked with a placard on our backs with her name on it celebrating her survival! It made the walk that much more memorable for both of us. Hi co-worker Patricia is also a survivor, as well as a friend of my family, Doris. It's incredible to see how many people this effects.

  1. can you send the recipe of the egg white automated breakfast Nancy showed on tv? I want to make it and it looked so good!

    oh and another thing, one of your posts said how expensive healthy eating is. I do jenny craig and it is only about 12 dollars a day - far less than when i did it on my own.
