The Eve of Komen

Tomorrow is the big day. Susan G Komen Race for the Cure is happening tomorrow morning bright and early, and it is one thing I love getting up early for.

Arkansas's Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure is the third largest race in the United States. It is kind of hard to believe that so many men and women come out to support the same cause. It is just amazing.

Every year when I'm walking over the Broadway Bridge I get misty-eyed. It is such an amazing sight to see all those women coming together to do something for the greater good. And it is even more amazing to see all the men who line the city streets to support all the women racing. It is something everyone should participate in once in their lives.

This year is my fifth year to "race". However, I am not running, just walking. One of these days I will run. But until then...

In preparation for Komen, I went on a little jog yesterday to get my mind right. Even though I'm not running, I still need to be on my game. Otherwise, I'll get ran over.

So today, the eve of Komen, I want to say thank you to all who participate in the event. Whether you're a runner, a walker, a survivor or just a donor, everything you do helps breast cancer patients and puts us one step closer to a cure. I applaude your efforts and wish you the best on this beautiful day.
