Weekend Must Have: Fun!

More than 71 thousand walkers and runners take to the streets of St. Louis as the 12th Annual Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure, moves west on Olive Street in downtown St. Louis on June 12, 2010. The race has raised more than $3.3 million for breast cancer research and charities.  UPI/BIll Greenblatt Photo via Newscom

omg!  With the craziness of the past week I forgot to share what I did last weekend... I participated in my first ever 5K race! I ran in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Kansas City last Sunday morning and it was amazing! Over 28,000 people showed up and raised over $1 million dollars for this amazing organization! It was such a rush to be apart of such a great cause! I'm happy to report that after several weeks of training I successfully finished the race (without walking!) in just 30 minutes! 

So, tell me... what are you up to this weekend, dear readers? Whatever it is, make it fun!

Congrats on finishing your 1st 5k - was there really that many people when you were running? I doing my 1st 5k in October ;) Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the stopping by! Yes, Robyn there were 28,000 runners and walkers at the race. Fortunately, though, they had the two groups separated and they even had a 1 mile walk for those who could/did not want to walk the entire 5K. It was a great experience! Good look with yours!
