If you have followed my blog for any amount of time you may remember me mentioning that my grandmother had breast cancer. But I don't think I ever mentioned that Mr. J's grandmother passed away in 2011 from cancer that had returned from breast cancer. Her mother (Mr. J's great grandmother) also passed from breast cancer. So breast cancer is something that is near and dear to our hearts.
I had so much fun at this race. Kellie and I stayed together for the first 3 miles and then I told her I was leaving her. I sped up a little from mile 3 to 3.5 and then just started to turn it on and pick people off. By mile 3.9 I turned on the burners and FLEW! I had one lady between me and the finish line and I wanted to beat her. I definitely did! I finished the 4 miles in 43:07. Not too bad for taking it easy.
We will definitely do this race EVERY year! I will run for those who can't!
I LOVE my after race banana! And this pic was after we did all 6 miles!! We were feeling good and happy to be done!
And that's me in BEAST mode! I was so happy to eat those 6 miles I was ready to take on the world!
QUESTION OF THE DAY!
What is a cause near and dear to you? Are you competitive?
