Race For The Cure NYC

source: How To Run Free

This Sunday, September 9th, 2012 is the 22nd Annual Susan G. Komen "Race For The Cure" in Central Park, NYC. I've been running since high school but it's been incredibly hard trying to get back into shape since my surgery 18 weeks ago.

I'm running with my dear friend, Dr. Elizabeth Hale, who runs marathons in her sleep, but she promises to go at my snail's pace to complete the mere 3.1 miles.

We'll be wearing our custom-designed C.G.G.C running tanks which better arrive today! I'll be making t-shirts and other gear which will be available to purchase as soon as I can figure out how to get an e-commerce portion of the site up-and-running (as well as being able to make charitable contributions on every sale!)

Next year, I'm going to organize a team. Apparently only 5 people are needed to create one and I'm pretty sure there are at least 5 of you out there willing to wear one of these!
