I arrived at 7:45am for the 9:00am start and even at that time, SouthCenter Mall parking lot was a happening place! My last run was 6km last Sunday and I hiked 15km yesterday, but that didn't matter, I knew the excitement and adrenaline would get me through today's 5km easily.
At exactly 9:00am we were off. It was very crowded at first but quickly spread out. There was so much to look at and listen to along the way that it took my mind off that I was running and the kilometers seemed to go by very quickly. My favourite part is where all the pink bras are hung on a line strung across the road. I could see them from a distance and as I got closer I picked out one that looked like it might be my size, then jumped up and gave it a tap as I ran under it.
This is the route!
These are my stats!
This is always a feel good event for me. I come away feeling very hopeful. I'm proud to be a part of this event especially when there is acknowledgement to us, in the long sleeve red shirts, from those standing and cheering along the route.
HOPE & COURAGE
