Why now? Well I decide to pick a 5K to attempt and in my search I found the Purple Run which raises money for American Cancer Society. It stuck a chord because a dear sister-friend had recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, for a second time. I started to think of all the people I know who have had cancer and many people dear to me have faced that moment when someone says "You have cancer."
Though it's late the game (race is in one week, and I only signed up three weeks ago), I thought it would be good to try to raise a little money. This is not my forte, but like the race itself, I am just doing it, just giving it a go.
