I survived ...

Yesterday I participated in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. We walked 3 miles, and it was hotter than heck out there. But I made it!

The group of over 20,000 women, men and children from across the Triangle continue to raise towards our goal of $2 million to help find a cure for breast cancer.

It was an absolutely amazing experience. As I crossed the finish line I turned to watch a Survivor behind me, a woman who had been in a wheelchair for the entire race. I missed the moment that she stood up, but I did see her cross the finish line. My friend and I had chills. We both turned to each other and we were crying.

What a beautiful moment to witness, what a beautiful day to be a part of.

Thanks. And maybe sometime soon we won't have to Race for a Cure, we'll already have one.
