Today was the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in San Diego. Patty had registered herself and I on the website and planned to attend. However, after the turn of events the last couple of days, plus Patty was is pretty fatigued today, we felt it best to stay home. My daughter, Kristi, and her friend were going to meet us there as well as Patty’s sister, Dottie. A few friends from work were also going. They all went to represent and support Patty.
We watched part of the event on TV which was pretty moving. There were over 18,000 people in attendance which is an incredible turnout! Patty’s sister Dottie was funny… she emailed us pictures to us as the event progressed. It was almost like we were there!
This is the first email she sent:
Everyone was invited!
Pink was definitely the theme!
The race started.
They’re going through Balboa Park.
Encouragement along the way!
Big hill at the end… looks like a lot of people are getting tired!
We’re sorry we didn’t make it today as it was an event we’d planned for months! But the :Adventures in Chemo” had other plans. Patty is wearing her “Race” shirt today! It’s a “survivor” shirt!
We’ve already decided we’re doing it next year! Patty says she’s going to run it! Me… we’ll see.
