Remember when I ran a 5K for boobies?
Well, the local Susan G. Komen folks now have me on their (e-)mailing list and keep sending me little things. Last week, I received an e-mail with 3 different links with race-day photos! 3 different photographers took a ton of amazing pictures of the day! The first set didn’t have any of me or anybody else I knew. But the second one? Oh, the second one had this little baby. (Because of copyright issues, I can’t just copy/paste the picture onto my blog. Even though it’s a picture of me. Boo.)
In case you can’t find me, look for the girl that looks like she about to die. The girl in the pink visor with a fire-red face.
But I am showing off my guns which makes me look like a total bad-ass so I guess this one is a draw.
In other Susan G. Komen 5K news, after I registered I spouted off about this every day until I was blue in the face. I encouraged others to join me. While most of them laughed (especially when the torrential downpour started), one poor sucker signed up to run too! He had just competed in a triathlon less than a month before the 5K yet he claims to “not be very athletic”. So, he did a timed run (unlike his slacker friend, Tara who just ran for “fun”) & he ran his best 5K. Ever!
Yay, Dr. Coats!
Then, out of nowhere, he popped into our department the other day (since the race, he has moved on to bigger & better things ::tear::sniffle::). Then he says, “So . . . I’m not athletic at all. And I’ve never won any awards for anything related to athletic skill. Ever. But–I placed 3rd in my division for the 5K and . . .”
::pause for dramatic effect::
His first athletic award is a pink medal!!!
Poor Dr. Coats. Maybe one day you will be a real boy 😀
