It's that time of the year again....Community Day and The Rose Run is THIS Saturday! For those of you who don't know what that is; it's a 5K that was started last year in honor of my friend's mother, Rose, who lost her battle with breast cancer in January of 2009. Last year, my hometown of Petersburg Michigan, raised over $10,000.00 for breast cancer research and this year promises to be bigger and better. This is the run that inspired me to start running...this year has been sporadic running at best but still...Here is a link to one of my very first blog posts explaining why I started running and blogging.
The Detective will be running this year also. I've chosen to be a more social creature and run/walk this year.
STOP LOOKING AT ME LIKE THAT. It's not that I can't run it...I'm just choosing to keep myself from being a sweaty mess of stink since I have to work at a booth after the run for Expressing Motherhood.
SO SUE ME.
Anyone interested in a 5K that lives near southeast Michigan is welcome to come out and register the day of the run, Saturday, July 17th! For more information go to: www.theroserun.com
