4th Annual Run, Walk or Crawl 5k - We Won't Lay Down 2 Cancer!

I just registered for a 5K and I checked off the "Runner" box. Yup, RUNNER - not walker. This is a first for me! In all honesty, I plan on running some and walking some. Although, a 5K is not long for a lot of people it is hella long for me. I've made no secret of the fact that I do not like to run but I do it - sometimes. And at a minimum I know that with this 5K it is for a great cause supporting Dana Farber and The Jimmy Fund.

Both my husband and I lost our fathers at young ages due to cancer. My friend Becky (who co-started this race) was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was 13 weeks pregnant with her first child. You can read more stories HERE and we are all aware that there are a million more stories like ours. That's why I registered. That's why I donate. That's why I share.

If you are local to the Boston area - come walk run with me. The family friendly, race is in Franklin, MA on July 20, 2013. You can register by clicking HERE. If you are not local but would like to donate, you can click HERE.

  1. I've actually never ran a 5K, but it's on my bucket list. I am not big on the whole running thing, but 5K isn't THAT far I suppose.

    1. That's how they get you! Maybe you could Zumba your way through the 5K?
