Embarrassed for a Good Cause: Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure


I am not even close to being athletic. Since I had gained a lot of weight, I decided to start jogging. It might have been closer to speed walking. I guess any exercise was better than sitting on my couch eating popcorn and gaining more weight.
The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure was coming to Columbus. It sounded like it could be fun. I could not believe that I entered a race, in which I would be running with real runners. It was really a great experience. Everyone was lovely and supportive of the runners.
The embarrassing part is that I got sick at the finish line in front of about 15,000 people. A nice man on the sidelines gave me his water, which I was grateful to have. Thanks stranger! The good part is that I finished anyway. The next time that the Race for the Cure comes to my area I will probably just volunteer. 🙂

P.S. In the meantime, I will be reprinting the picture that I’ve posted. I seem to have lost the original but I have the film. That’s half the battle. 🙂
