Jamie and I ran in the Sprint for Cancer on Sunday and accomplished our goal of running the whole time. We finished in under 34 minutes. It was a beautiful day and so fun to run with Jamie. Eric and Ona came to cheer us on:) Jamie and I ran the race in honor of our co-worker and my mentor Linda who is winning the fight against breast cancer (see story below about how I’m a donkey!).
Here’s a picture of the finish line. Hard not to be distracted by the woman grabbing her crotch who’s blocking Jamie out of the pic.
So, I called Linda after the race to tell her all about it and she was shocked that I was running in honor of her. Actually, she was VERY surprised to even hear from me. When I told her I ran in support of her fight against breast cancer, she was like, "WHAT!?" Ya, I called the wrong Linda. I called a Linda I haven’t spoken to in 2 years. I’m such a donkey. Then while I was attempting to recover, how does one recover from that, Linda overheard Eric rolling on the floor in laughter. I’m such a donkey! I called the real Linda after that and added last names to my cell phone address book.
Here’s a picture of Ona is her sunglasses Eric got her on his man’s trip to Colorado:
