Race For the Cure


I did it!! I'm not a runner and really never had a desire to be a runner, but I ran my first 5k today. It was pretty cool. Obviously the "Race for the Cure" is a great cause and it was very inspiring. Out of the 18,000+ people that were there I actually ran into a friend who beat breast cancer at the age of 24!! Anyway, my good friend Emily, who is a runner, ran with me and made me run faster than I was used to. I kind of psyched myself out thinking that it was going to be so hard and I was going to have to run so slow, but it wasn't too bad. The best part was going to lunch after and shopping with the girls. Thanks Ann, Chelle and Emily.

Wow Kendra, I didn't know that you were a runner! You must be in great physical shape to do that... I can't remember the last time I ran anywhere :-)

Love,
