Susan Komen Race for the Cure

If you want one of the most moving experiences of your life, participate in a Susan Komen Race. To see that survivors parade that seems to go on forever is surreal. And to see people you recognize that you haven't seen for years wearing their pink survivor's shirt takes your breath away.

Our office participated in our 3rd annual Komen Race yesterday. The weather forecast was intermittent showers and it sure looked like it when we got there. But our race is always the same weekend as the Allentown Art Festivial and the festival Gods always smile down on them. I can only remember one year in the last twenty or so where there was rain. So, instead of rain it just got hotter and more humid. This was the first year I have have walked the full length - 5K. The route was changed and it was a beautifully scenic walk down some gorgeous Buffalo Streets. It is great to see people doing something with all those old houses.

Here's a few shots from the race.
