Race for the Cure

Every year my wife's work sponsors employees to walk in a few of the fall fund-raisers, and to day was the Race for the Cure, the breast cancer walk. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, too, and we like to get out in support. So, we bundled up the fam this morning and headed out to the walk.







It was held at UNR this year, a more interesting route than the Southeast Reno neighborhood it's been in for the past few years. Downside? Bottlenecks everywhere, stuff weirdly spread out - a total zoo. We couldn't find any of the other people from Mich's office, so just trundled our way to the start and started walking.




7-year old Julien acquitted himself pretty well, although we could tell he was tired of walking near the end. Almost-4 Sofia didn't fare as well - it was pretty much a whine-fest the whole way. Here's one of the few moments when she wasn't riding on my shoulders.











The ugly numbers...

Hey, I think I see my head in that crowd shot! J/K. Awesome for your kidlets- I'm gonna try the 1/2 mile run with mine in a couple weeks. I hope they fare well...

Thanks and hugs to you all for the support.
