Well I did it. I signed up for my first 5k run and there's no backing out of it now. I signed up for the CIBC Run for the Cure Run September 30th. I haven't really been training like I should be. I know what you're thinking...5k is nothing! You don't need to train for that. Well I do! I have never been good at running long distances so I need to build up my endurance. Plus I'll have friends running beside me so I have the motivation to keep going.
Not only is this on my bucket list, but it's for a great cause - all proceeds go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This is near and dear to my heart. Some years ago, my wonderful Grandma Ronnie developed breast cancer. Our family is one of the lucky ones because she survived and is still kicking around today. She is one of the most positive and strong people I know so I am running to support her and the many others breast cancer affects.
I am only part way to reaching my goal and if you should feel so inclined, please donate to this wonderful cause. If you would like to support my run you can click here. There is also the option to make a general donation if you wish.
