Think Pink! Race for the Cure

Once again I will be running in the Race for the Cure, a 5k run scheduled for this Saturday. This year the race is sponsored by the Hurwitz Breast Cancer Fund. If you are interested in making a donation, click here.

Last year I almost missed the race due to a hip injury just weeks before. This year the opposite is true; I think I've overtrained. I've had a serious case of "heavy legs" the past two weeks. Hopefully, the break between last night's run and Saturday will be just the tonic for that.

Okay, enough about me. Let's talk breast cancer, shall we? Or, for that matter, cancer in general. Anything any of us can do to push for a cure for cancer, prior to the One-World Socialist Utopia Dystopia of "free" government health care making medical advancements a pipe dream, is of the utmost urgency.

Okay, here's the "over/under".

  • Target time: 26 minutes
  • Target finish (all): top 1/3
  • Target finish (over 50): top 10
Wish me luck!

BTW, I just had a frightening visual image of a vulture trying to run. It's not a pretty sight...
