In The Pink

Today I ran the Women's 5K Classic in the Lehigh Parkway. I saw lots of friends and co-workers!

The mission of the Women's 5K Classic is the following:
"1. To promote fitness among women and invite women to participate in running and walking to enhance their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
2. To support women with breast and female cancers and their families and to contribute to funding for related programs and research in the Lehigh Valley.
3. To educate women about cancer awareness, prevention and treatment."

It was a great event. The atmosphere was very optimistic and supportive. Our goal was to help each other be healthy and fit. Over 5000 women participated in this event, 1500 in the 5K alone!

Bringing it home.... A sea of pink

Well done Anne, Shelly, and Siddiqa! It sounds like a great race with a wonderful mission.

I saw a really good movie last night on TV - "Living Proof". It was about the development of herceptin, a break-through drug for a specific type of breast cancer. It was a reminder to me about what people with cancer go through and how important it is to find cures.
