Knowing your own body, your heart and what you have in your soul .
4 am came pretty early.
The crowd starts to gather
The statistics are pretty high that either you personally or someone you know has been touched by breast cancer. When I set out on this journey at the beginning of summer to train for the Charlottesville women’s 4 miler race, I wanted to honor those that I knew that had come face to face with this horrible disease.
We are all smiles as the rain sets in.
Crossing the finish line arm in arm with my girls.
I cried like a baby this morning when I saw the photos Mr. Wishes took.
From my perspective.
To the starting line.
Over 3500 women in the race, the line goes for as far as you can see.
So many people came out to cheer us on – this was my favorite sign – Run Now – Tequila later!
Pam our training director cheers us on all the way to the end.
I knew all along this would be both a physical and mental challenge for me. I had no idea that there would be so many twist and turns over the past several weeks. Truth be told, as recently as a week ago, I did not even think I would be able to participate in the race. It has been an amazing journey.
So many incredible stories and amazing women – I am grateful to have been a part of this day.
Until next time,
To The UVA Cancer Center Breast Care Program – Thank you
