I am writing this while laying in bed. My body is a little tender from the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5k walk/run. I started off the day at 5AM in the morning. I arrived at Kapi’olani Community College at 6AM, an hour before the race and I was already running late. I was lucky enough to grab the last shuttle and made it just in time to meet my friend, Illyuson. The race started and ended at Kapi’olani Beach Park. The path is flat and paved. All in all, an easy race to do. If anyone is new to racing, I suggest doing this race. All walks of life were at this race: overweight, skinny, old, young, men, and women. After seeing people still battling cancer, all thoughts of not making it went away. I felt that this is for them and for all the people who lost their lives to cancer. I was going to cross that finish line even if I have to crawl across it.
The real reason why I did this race is finding the cure to cancer. I believe that I am doing my part by donating money. I’m happy that I was allowed to walk in remembrance for someone who had breast cancer. I never thought someone close to me was affected by breast cancer, so I was more than happy to walk in her honor. Some times we forget that not only does the person that have cancer is affected, but also their loved ones as well.
Here are some pictures I took at the event.
