Congrats to YOU! I like the way you used the second word to describe your finish...PROUD! As you should be.

We'll be back next year....you may want to consider going with us. If our "Hero" is up to it, we'll do the 5K, too! (Past 3 years, she's been either in or just finishing chemo in time to do the mile...)

Well the plan was to run it with my 16 year old niece, but we got separated within seconds of the start. I'm so proud of her, she finished in 30:15. I finished at a slow but proud 45:00, a full 5 minutes slower than my first 5k in December.

I hope to do it again next year!

Wasn't it an awesome event?

Three of us sparkers were there, (Vivian, Katrina, and me) and there were 11 of us on our team, that crossed the line together. But then, amidst the thousands that were there, we all got separated. Found our sign with a few friends attached (ha ha) about an hour after searching for a familiar face...

The parade of survivors always is so emotional. And SO inspiring.

Will do it again next year, for the girls...

I ran as an individual today at the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure in Sacramento. This was my 3rd 5K, but the biggest by far, there was so many people there. We lost our husbands after the race took us hour to find them--we didn't carry our cell phones on the run. Next time I will. I was very impressed and motivated to see so many people there. My first 5K was about 150 people and my second 5K was about 400 people, so I was excited to be part of such a great event. I ran it in 41:42 my best overall time. My first 5K was 45:03, so i was happy. Thanks for your local updates. emoticon

You can register online up until about 48 hours before the event by credit card and I think you can even register the morning of the race

If you'd like I can get a definative answer for you.

Thank you for providing the necessary information for this event. I've always wanted to partake in the Komen Race and this year I will along with my mother & sisters.

You can have RESULTS or EXCUSES... not both!

Just got word that the site is "Officially open" for registration. Come on, all of you...join us. Our team is "For the Girls" but there are lots of other teams, and you can sign up as individuals as well. It is just such an awesome event!

Exactly.

And thanks SMASHY for making this a sticky topic! Hopefully we'll have other folks spot it and join us...especially those who have never done a benefit walk before.

Although I only do the walk, not the run, I totally agree about the site...it is incredibly dull, but the experience, well, it is not.

It is the area's largest 5k. Still, I agree. The Cal Expo is miserably dull.

I know this race is huge and where else can you have it? But I hate running at Cal Expo, it's depressing. I did it the first few years at the Capitol. That's a nice run, but the last year you couldn't even move. It was worse than Run to Feed the Hungry.

Yup, I'll be out there again this year, with my friend who is a survivor! :-)

I am SO glad you are both doing the walk/run also. It is such a worth while event. Doesn't really matter which team you are on, just getting out there!

And Karen, you are more than welcome to join US! (heh heh)

CalPERS (my employer) also organizes a group for this event.

Like last year, I will be out there running as head of Team Treasured Chests! Here's hoping the therapists give you the go ahead!

For the third year in a row, we are going to do the walk in support of breast cancer research....hoping to find a cure.

Our team "For the Girls" has been registered and I have attached this link for those who want to join us. It is an AWESOME event...as those that walked last year can attest to.

There is a one mile walk, a 5K walk/run (timed or untimed) at Cal Expo. You can make your choice on the day of the event.

I have an injured foot right now, and my physical therapist has set a goal for me to do the one mile...although I am hoping to be able to do the 5K.

I hope you will join us for this worthy cause.
