Today is October 1st!! October for those of you who don't know is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I toyed with turning my page PINK and really making a statement.....but that is not me. So here is my BIG Announcement..
I will run the Rock 'N' Roll Seattle Marathon June 2010 on behalf of Marathon for the Cure. I told myself I would NEVER run that Marathon again!!! My change of heart came when I saw the Rock 'N' Roll Seattle race listed as an official partnered race on the Marathon for the Cure Website. I knew this was the Cause I have been searching for (for 2010 anyway)... Below is information about Marathon for the Cure...
Marathon for the Cure, a program of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, is a grassroots fundraising program offering runners the chance to join in the fight against breast cancer by running a full or half marathon. Marathon for the Cure expands the reach of Komen for the Cure beyond the 5k and offers distance runners and aspiring distance runners the opportunity to raise much needed funds in support of Komen for the Cure’s vision of a world without breast cancer while training for and running in some of the most elite distance races in the world.
To participate in Marathon for the Cure as a runner in one of our official marathon partner’s races, a runner must commit to a fundraising minimum of $2,200. There is more! There are many ways to be a member of our program! You can choose any full or half marathon you want to run and be a team member by committing to raise $250. Visit the Website HERE.
Any half Marathon or Marathon can be run for this cause which I think is AWESOME!! I thought I would run my half this month for the cause but somehow the "Frightfest Half Marathon" did not seem to fit. In the weeks and months to come I will be asking for your support and offering some FUN incentives. My hope today is that you WILL find a way to go PINK for October...
- Next up on Tall Mom: High Five Friday, Product Reviews and a GIVEAWAY!!!
- I was TIRED last night....but I decided to RUN anyway....I think I was pumped about Going PINK!! I ran my tough 4 miler which includes 2 BIG Hills. I ROCKED it 31:06 or 7:45 pace.
