Race for the Cure 2010: A Huge Accomplishment
Today was a huge deal for me. Friends and I participated in the 2010 Race for the Cure in Frankfurt, Germany. Two walked the 2km, and the rest of us ran the 5km. This was my first attempt at any kind of running race and most definitely the longest I have ever run at one time. The big thing is: I finished. It was not all running, it was not fast, but it was complete. I am very proud of myself for doing this, I am thankful for my supportive husband who ran with me for the first part, I am glad for the strangers who encouraged me (in several languages) throughout the route. I am glad that for a little while today, I was part of something huge. Something that will make a difference.
