Race for the Cure

The Indianapolis Race for the Cure was yesterday. It was my first time to participate, and it was so amazing. At one point in the walk, you are at the top of a hill--looking down ahead of you, and back behind you, you can see all of the other people who are walking. It is pretty incredible when you realize how many people are there with you. It was especially moving to see the children walking in memory of their mothers, and to see the survivors in their bright pink tshirts.
It was a beautiful day, perfect for an event like that. Sunny, nice temperature. Several people brought their dogs to the race, which I hadn't thought of. Maybe Foxy will come next year.

Stats on the Race:
17,554 participants
$472,786.27 raised
$285 contributed by you--thank you everyone for your pledges!

I had a wonderful time walking. I definitely plan to participate again. If you have not done anything like this before, you should definitely look for a Race near you.
