Old Salem for the
"Race for the Cure".
The day started out sunny and cool, but before we reached the staging area for the race , it had clouded up and became very humid.
The race organizers held the race up for about 15 minutes to allow late comers to register for the race. They had hoped for 10,000
runners/ walkers, and they got their wish.
This is how far back we were from the start line.
It took us..............
10 minutes to get to the starting line after the race started.
And 1 hour, 2 minutes and 57 seconds later (minus the 10 minutes it took to get to the start line) we crossed the finish line.
Needless to say when I got home, I spend part of the afternoon out in the screened porch laying on the couch !
I walked in memory of friends (Shirley & Suzanne) I have lost and family (Lynda) who is a survivor.
for whatever reason
was there for a great cause!
I hope to be there again next year.
