October... the leaves are changing, it's getting colder and it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Once again this year I signed up for the CIBC Run For the Cure, the 5K Run/Walk to raise funds and awareness for this disease.
This morning it was bright, clear and cool as the Run got underway, it has been raining so often here that I was a little worried about having to go in the rain. Yuck. But it was sunglasses and a new playlist on my shuffle as I lined up to start my walk.
I wasn't the only one as you can see here - there were a few people. The local paper has an article up - around 9 000 people came and raised about $1.6 million.
I managed to cross the finish line in about 56 minutes - I had to stop and retie my shoe at about the 2K mark - it wasn't tied tightly enough and was causing major calf issues. Dani came back and walked the last 5 minutes or so with me - thanks :)
Here we are: The Fat one (me) Todd and Dani after the Run.
Unfortunately this year breakfast wasn't very good and we all agreed not to return to the restaurant we chose.
Congrats to Dani for reaching her goal- and an awesome Run.
Now I'm off to work on a some chores around the apartment and to start framing "The Baby thing".
