My first 5K

It’s official – I have signed up to run in the Lowcountry Race for the Cure at Daniel Island, SC (near Charleston) on October 18th. This will be my first 5K. I have really enjoyed running this summer to get ready for the race and it is for a great cause. My mom was diagnosised with breast cancer at the age of 35. I was only 15 at the time and now see how young she really was – I turned 35 this year! The best part is my mom is running too! It was her idea! She fought her battle with breast cancer with strength and faith and is still here to keep fighting this disease by raising money and awareness. You can check out my personal Race for the Cure page here.

You can also send me your running advice because I have a sore ankle right now. I am hoping it’s just from running in the loose sand at high tide and it will go away soon. I’ll keep you posted.
