One in eight women are or will become diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. Being that there are a lot of women running around out there, myself included, it’s likely that we all know somebody that has/ had/ or will have breast cancer. The Portland Race for the Cure event is happening this Sunday, September 20th, down at the Waterfront Park. If you’re able to walk or run, click here to register. If you are not able to attend for whatever reason you can still donate and help save a life. You can even donate on my behalf if you would like by clicking here!! =)
9/22/09 Update: To you who sponsored me, thank you very much for your care and support. The run went well. I finished the 5k in just under 26 minutes, which averages out to be about 8.36 minutes per mile. I run a lot these days but I spend a lot of time at crosswalks and what not, waiting. Running the straight 3.1 miles without any pauses made me realize I have A LOT of work to do before entering a marathon! Not to mention 8.36 is a wee bit faster than my typical 10 minute mile. Time to hit the road!
