Race for the Cure

I love love love the Race for the Cure! It is by far my favorite race. I look forward to it all year. No matter who comes or doesn't come and race with me, I will be there. I wouldn't miss this race for anything. This year I knew a few people doing the race, but I planned to run by myself. Now that I'm more of a "runner" I was fine running by myself and a little excited to see how fast I could do it. I am by no means fast, but I was happy with the pace I ran.
this is why i love this race. there's nothing quite like 18,000 people coming together for a cause. the number alone is amazing but so are all the people running in memory of/in celebration of their mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend, self.

after the race i met up with my friend, Lindsey, and her family. her family knows how to have fun, and i was lucky enough to get to tag along.

our first stop was So Cupcake. it's the cutest gourmet cupcake place, and they have the cutest yummiest cupcakes. these mini cupcakes are only $1.50 and come in delicious flavors. Lindsey's cute family insisted I get a cupcake or two.
Lindsey's niece and nephew were so cute. They knew exactly what to order. Her mom is a breast cancer survivor so it was an added bonus to participating in the race. Her family is really so cute. After the cupcake stop, we hit Cheesecake Factory for lunch. I had so much fun meeting her family and spending the morning with them. Thanks Lindsey for letting me tag along and thanks to your family for being so kind.


  1. Good for you! Between you and Sarah I think I just might try to get running again.

  2. How fun... I here that race is a blast to do and what an awesome cause! Hope you are doing well... long time no talk :)
