Our team, the Goodwin Gladiators made a great showing at the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k run today. There were about 5,000 runners and walkers, and we won an award for having the second largest team (I think we ended up with something like 82 team members). The weather was mostly cooperative, with really high humidity but good cloud cover and a gentle breeze to cool things off. Energy was high and everyone seemed to be in a celebratory mood! We had an absolute blast, and were able to do some good for a seriously good cause: raising awareness about breast cancer and getting the dollars to fight it. Plus there was a live band, music, dancing, and more than one pink doggie!
It really was a joyous and fun event, and I look forward to doing this again next year!
