Here We Go!

Race for the Cure 2012

Tomorrow is the 2013 Komen Greater NYC Race for the Cure and the C.G.G.C team has raised over $3,000 from 36 supporters!! I have a great team walking/running with me this year: Liz, Lisa, Laura, Janet, Karen, Julie, and Andrew! Next year we will be more!

I found the above picture of Liz and me on the Komen website taken at last year's race which was only 4 months after surgery. We both wore the C.G.G.C tanks that I had made and mine barely fit over the tissue expanders. They were odd-shaped, out of proportion, and rested so high up on my chest I swear sometimes I could taste them. I also didn't realize that I wouldn't or couldn't wear a sports bra and it was quite a challenge fitting 2 other tank tops underneath in order to provide a little more coverage and psychological protection. I'll make sure to do a post on the kinds of sports bras I now wear when I run.

Spoiler Alert: Target!

There's still time to donate to the team (even after the race is over) by clicking on the link below:
