Today was our Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Wichita Falls, Texas. It was an amazingly beautiful day this morning. Our event was held downtown and as we walked to the race site we ran into a wonderful lady from our church who’s going through treatments for breast cancer. It was good to see her up and going today. There’s actually several survivors from our congregation, some of whom I didn’t realize were until I saw them in the pink shirts.
I can’t say how many people were there as I’m a bad judge of numbers. But it was a really good turnout. There was music and an upbeat atmosphere. I even ran into a couple of the runners from Team in Training last spring. It was fun to see everyone.
The race itself was great. Troy and I ran the first half mile, and then alternated. I’ve only been walking since the half marathon last spring, and not timed at that. So 43 minutes was fair for me. The most important thing is that the race benefits a great cause, and some great people!
