Race for The Cure May 9th, 2009


Race for the Cure
Boise, Idaho
May 9th, 2009

Of course, this blog has to be in Pink. This morning was quite inspiring! Last year Boise had 14,050 walkers and this year we topped 15,000. It is pretty impressive for our population. I found today to be quite inspiring and very touching. I especially liked the papers on the backs of people that said who they were walking in memory of or celebration of. There were sisters,aunts, mothers, daughters, even fathers. All I can say about this event is that it felt wonderful to be a part of this group. I would do it again in a heartbeat and Lindsey and I want to find more walks like this to be a part of. I know that my Emily would have loved to be a part of this walk also. I feel very tired today, it is more emotional than anything because I walk 3 miles on the treadmill everyday, so it is not the physical exhaustion, but rather all the emotions involved in this day. Let's all pray for a cure, the sooner the better.
