2008 Race For The Cure – Portland!
Posted by audaciousalbert on September 23, 2008
Running in the Race for the Cure in Portland was amazing this year! Aside from all the free stuff I got, I was empowered to see and meet all the people supporting the fight against breast cancer, and who are raising money, and awareness to fund breast cancer research to find “The Cure!”
I ran, along with my sister, in the 5k competitive division. My time was 18:00, which is a personal best for me! Results are posted here: http://www.accustatsportstiming.com/08_cure/results3.asp.
I was amazed that I could run that fast. My fastest time prior to this was a 19:30 which I ran years ago in high school cross-country. I guess my marathon training has been helping me with shorter distances as well. Watch for me at the Portland Marathon – Oct. 5th!
I heard 45,000 people came out for the Race! That’s pretty awesome. My mom is standing in front of me here in the pink hat. :)
Here is a picture of my sister Cathi, and her BF Dat. Congratulations Cathi for running your very first 5k race! And thanks Dat for coming out, supporting, and holding our stuff while we ran. :)
Here are some more pictures I took from the Race for the Cure:
