The Power of Four September 7, 2009

I’m still limping a bit when I go down stairs, but overall I survived the Charlottesville Women’s Four Miler.  Despite not stretching my quads as much as I should have, I managed to beat my time challenge – under 39 minutes.  My boss had challenged me to do the four miles in under 39 minutes, which would have meant less than a 10 minute mile (my normal pace).  Luckily the 3,299 other women, scores of volunteers, and amazingly supportive crowds were ample motivation to push me through miles two and three, which were the hardest.   I finished in 37:09!  My sister, aunt, and mom all beat their own time goals as well.  How about that for the power of four?

Go ladies!

Go ladies!

 

All in all, this event is a wonderful way to support breast cancer patients in Charlottesville as well as showing support for all those affected by this common disease.  As of race day, they had reached 75% of their fundraising goal, so thank you to everyone who donated!  I can’t wait to do this again next year.  Here is to my sister and all other survivors.  And my best wishes to everyone affected by breast cancer.  May this race be just one small part on our way to finding a cure.

    Awesome job! Breast cancer is close to my heart as well. I had no idea your sister was a survivor! Congrats on your 37 minute time!
