Race for the Cure

So, I never thought I'd say this... but I've become a runner. Thanks to Mindi:) Brock and I have just recently started to get into it. We haven't really been the racing type but all of the sudden we've caught the fever. I didn't ever think I would love to run, but we have so much fun together. We just did the Race for the Cure in SLC this Saturday. It was a really neat experience. I've done other races, but I really liked this one because it was so inspiring. There was people all over running for someone they loved. There was young girls running with bald heads and husbands pushing their wives in wheelchairs. It made me so grateful for the family I have the the health we have all been blessed with. I love to see the strength I don't have in other people. The families of the survirors are so supportive. I know people are only given trials that they can handle because I question whether or not I could go through something like that and I would never trade my trials for theirs, but they still seem so positive and have an optimistic outlook on life. It was really inspiring to look around and see 18,000 people all around me running for the same cause. The roads were filled as far as I could see in front and back of me, in fact, the first few minutes we couldn't even run because there was so many people. It was awesome! Here are a couple race day pics (sorry Mindi I ripped off some of yours!)
