Woohoo!! I am halfway through my goal of 14 races in 2014! I originally wasn't planning on doing the Race for the Cure again this year, but when my sister called asking if I'd be interested in joining her work team and that they were paying for the registration fee I couldn't pass up a free race! Being a big race with such a worthy cause, you know it was packed! The volunteers directing traffic and such did a great job and it wasn't too difficult to get around. There were lots vendors passing out lots of free swag and samples and it really had the feel of a festival rather than a race.
The race itself went great! There were plenty of water stations throughout the course and it wasn't too crowded once we moved past the starting line a bit. I ran the race with my sister in memory of our aunt and her mother-in-law who have passed away due to breast cancer and for our other aunts who have battled and survived breast cancer as well.
