Week 10 - Race for the Cure!

Well folks, I did it!  I ran the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Race in Spokane on April 18, 2010.  I have to tell you that it was fantastic!  The weather was perfect and the race inspiring.  I found myself getting caught up in the emotions of the day and was quite overcome after I finished the race.  I know so many friends who have been affected by breast cancer, and I dedicate this race to them.  Here are some photos from my race:

Me and my number. I was very proud!Lining up for the start with 9,000 other runners!

What an awesome feeling.  I didn't have to stop at all, and I completed the 5k in about 33 minutes, which was faster than my predicted 36 minutes.  My body didn't suffer any ramifications, which is a testament to the Couch to 5k program I have been doing for the last 10 weeks.  I had a blast and I can't wait to do more races!  Which reminds me, Bloomsday is just around the corner!
