This weekend was supposed to be my third running of the PCRF Reaching for the Cure Half Marathon. Last year, thanks to Margot, I scored an 18 minute PR. That was fun.
I'm pretty sure I'm NOT running the half this weekend. I guess my hopes of being invincible did not come true, and I don't really want to risk actually injuring my right leg (as opposed to the annoying middling pain I'm currently experiencing).
I've toyed with running the 5K, and I might, just to do something, but in the end, I'm really excited to cheer on some friends, and have a fun day.
Because, this isn't a race I do for myself.
That puts the Team Gab total over the last 3 years at $12,680.
A friend of mine contacted me today, asking what would be a good thing to do for a friend that just had their kid diagnosed with cancer.
Those $12,680 will help STOP those kinds of emails.
It will help change a protocol that had my 5 year old taking 13 pills a night.
It will make another kids medical records stay under 4" high.
It will change the numbers that we are looking at, even in remission.
So many of you, in real life and the internet machine, have already donated, and I appreciate every penny that you have dedicated to this cause.
So that's it.
I want to say thank you, to each of you, for your support in my fundraising for the last 3 years.
Here's a cute picture to make your Friday happy.
