Race for the Cure

Yesterday was the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure Kansas City 5K. We survived the heat and the 6am wake up call. My camera's battery ran down before I could get very many shots:( I'm so sad I didn't get a team picture, but I'm thankful for my friends and family who came out to walk with me. My mom's best friend of 35+ years was there, as well as many of my own best friends, my dad and even J's relatives (I really did marry into the most amazing family ever). And although I couldn't help thinking that my mom should be there walking with me, I felt blessed to be alive, healthy, happy and surrounded by great people. It was a terrific event with 27,000+ participants and raising over $1.1million for breast cancer. So, thank you to everyone who walked, ran, donated, volunteered and supported this. My heart goes out to you all...
love, s

  1. I'm so sorry that your mom is no longer with us. I've been participating in the Race for Cure for over 5 years, and it truly is an amazing event. I had the honor this past year of volunteering at the Survivor's Tent, and everyone that visited was an inspiration. ::hugs::
