    Yesterday the wife and i ran in the 15th annual Helena Race for the Cure. IT's a 5k run/ fund raiser for breast cancer research and treatment. There were over 4 thousand people there and for montana that's a lot.

    Registrations was a $30 dollar donation per runner, and we recieved a free shirt for running.
    Our time was 37:35, but we started out in the back (only got there about a min and a half before they fired the starting gun :D  ) so it's not too bad a time actually. Got a whole bunch of cool pics, and it was a perfect day to run, no wind/rain/snow and not to hot either.

    Really had a lot of fun, and feel pretty good about being a part of it.
    Coolest part of the day was seeing a 78 year old cancer survivor cross the finish line in just under 55 min. Really inspiring.

    If your area or state is having something similar, or you can afford it, please find some what to contribute to the cause. Every little bit helps. Next year if we're still in montana, we'll have our daughter run with us.

    Here's a couple of fun pics.

    ^ it's also for treatment and prevention, mamograms (spleing bad) specially for those who can't afford it.

    Cool. I wonder if they'll ever find a cure for cancer... that doesn't end like I Am Legend...

    I ran the Human Race when I was in sixth grade. Tiring, but I went with a friend and it felt good to help out in the community, especially since both of our moms work all the time for non-profits...

    You and Foster make me feel lazy. Good man for supporting the cause

    I did a walkathon for breast cancer a few years ago, but I'll do anything for those.

    Ours is coming up soon in St. Louis but I fear I wont be in shape to run it quite yet.

    Congrats on doing it though.
