The 10K race - graduated from cancer - PICTURES

Sunday, August 21, 2011

What a fantastic way to graduate from cancer treatment by going 10k yesterday!

I can't describe the feeling I had when I was going the 10k with my sister and daughter, my husband and son walking behind my with LAURIETAIT, and my brother in law and his son!

When I crossed the finish line my endorsement went through and the cancer center Light got 875$

Here are some pictures that I took before the race and during but you can SEE THEM ALL! :) by going to this url

Got my number and only 15 hours until the race starts!

Having fuuun :)

5k finished!

With the Reykjavik former Mayor :) She was drinking coffee and watching the runners :)

My sister at BJÖRK house, the famous singer :)

Me at Sportacus house the Lazy Town person :)

My daughter playing how she would feel if she had finished 39k :)

So much fun :)

A good day for a Marathon :)

My friends form the Cancer support center The Light made cupcakes :)

I and my sister :) :)

I and my daughter

Getting to the finish line :)

Almost there :)


LAURIETAIT from Canada who is on SPARK PEOPLE!!!

The family that RAN 10K together!!!!

This was awesome! and so much fun meeting one of the SP friend, how fantastic the world works!!!!

Thank you so much for all your encouragement during the last months! You have kept my spirit up and gave me so much! And all the comments I have gotten for the last days on the feed! I LOVED THEM!!!...

I am so behind answering you and commenting on your pages, but now I can relax and give my self time to do it! I can't wait reading what you have been up to!...

The 10k that I have been so nervous to do, because the doctors told me that I would probable not go are behind me CAN YOU BELIVE IT! and the day before the race the doctor told me that I was CANCER FREE! and I could just start living a NORMAL LIVE!!!! Imagen what is waiting for me...

Please enjoy life! Do what you want and don't make ANY ONE tell you what you can and can't do!. YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING!!!

I really hope you enjoyed the pictures but I thought of you all when I ran the 10k!
