Upcoming Event: 2011 Komen Race for the Cure® 5K

Breast cancer is one of the most prevalent forms of cancer in the world and while there is no cure there is more hope than ever.  Most people have been affected by breast cancer in some way or another: maybe a family member, friend, or someone they work with has undergone treatment.  My family has had its fair (or unfair) share of brushes with breast cancer.  Several Aunts and Grandmas have battled with the disease.  Thanks to early prevention and improved treatment they are mostly cancer free and doing well.

The 2011 Miami/Ft Lauderdale Race for the Cure will be held this Saturday, October 15, at 8:30 am at Miami's Bayfront Park. The event is part of the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series, which is the largest series of 5K runs/fitness walks in the world.  I will be participating along with at least one other Tri Loco.


As part of our triathlon training we've been incorporating at least one interval or tempo run each week. The speed work has dramatically improved my overall running speed and I'm excited to see how fast I can go Saturday.  My last 5K was the Baptist Health Tour of the Gables.  With a finishing time of 25:28, the race is my 5K PR, which I hope to crush on Saturday.

Don't forget that even though October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month you can make a donation at any time.
