Race For The Cure

We spent the early morning on Sunday out on a little stroll with 55,000 of our friends. I was able to secure a few hours off of work to participate, and Ahna, Ezra, and my Mom picked me up from the firehouse at 6:15am. We made it up to Denver, parked, and wandered near the start line by 7am…and started our walk at the end of the 5K run that had just kicked off. We were able to find and meet up with our friends Britta and Ryan Fisher, and we enjoyed their company as we completed the course. It was again a chilly morning (seems like it is cold every single year) – with temps hovering near the 30 degree mark and a slight wind that made it occasionally colder. Denver is the home to the world’s largest Race For The Cure, and even though the numbers were a little down from last year, it was great to once again head out and help such an amazing cause.

Thanks to my Mom for the photos.
