When Dwayne and I got there this morning, the number of people in purple shirts was overwhelming. It was one of the most organized races we had ever done and I have to be honest and tell you that it was some of the best swag I have ever received for a race.
You can see Kat sporting it here. Dwayne and I chose to go with the "I look like I am going to rob you" motif.
The starting line was filled with people ...
One little person caught my eye in particular.
In the first mile I kept up with Dwayne and his 7:15 mile pace. Then I started slowing down to more of my average racing pace which is closer to 8:15.
When we finished the race, there were volunteers handing us reusable ice packs which I thought was the coolest thing! It cooled me down immediately and I wondered why every race doesn't do this?
I finished the race at a solid 25:43 and was 5th in my age range and 119 overall. When I saw the finishers board, I realized that there were 1,000 people running with us for this fight against cancer. How awesome!
We waited at the finish line for Kat and John to come through and started screaming when we saw them. They did a great job!

Congrats to all who ran today for this amazing cause. Great job all!
