Susan Komen Race for the Cure
Everything is PINK for the Susan G Komen Race for the Cure
My medal with some gifts
Breakfast.....at 6:30am...for survivors and family, photo by Marion
During the Pink Parade (survivors)..The lady to my left is in the middle of her radiation treatment
I'm getting to the podium: left Nicole Brady from KOB TV4, then Tom Joles, the 2 main anchors. All the way to the right is our Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish.
I love to speak.....sometimes
Steve just got his medal
Marion la Jolie got hers
No, we are not proud, not at all....LOL!
Back at home
As you can see I am wearing the color of the day, a very discreet pink..
Some pictures were taken by Steve., a couple by Marion la Gazelle
We all got medals:
Steve was 1st in male 18 to 49
Marion was 2nd in female 18 to 49
I was 1st survivor and therefore 1st senior survivor.
The local TV Eyewitness news channel 4 was there with Tom Joles and Nicole Brady....I was interviewed but the segment was cut off....probably a good thing for the guy (not Tom Joles) kept asking me the same questions and I was desperately trying to find new adjectives to describe the same thing...."it's awesome....wonderful feeling...very happy....moving....terrific...." you get the point! My knee was fine for the race but I did not push too hard, time 26'45", same as race last Sunday.
Later on I will post a picture of the beautiful watch I won along with the medal.
