As a member of the Tampa Bay Bloggers, I have been invited to be a “Race Ambassador for the Cure” at the upcoming Susan G. Komen 1 mile, 5k and 10k Glow run in St. Pete. This will be our third year participating in the Race for the Cure.
Finding a cure for Breast Cancer is a cause that is very close to my heart.
My mom is now a 12 year survivor! 12 YEARS!!
The first year our family participated in this event was in 2013.
My mom was able to come along with us.
But then she moved to North Carolina, and last year it was just Ronin and I. My girls were in no mood to get up early and go running without their Nanny around.
Ronin and I joined up with fellow Tampa Bay Blogger and Breast Cancer advocate Steph Garcia from #TeamJudy and Orangespoken.
This year my girls and my husband are not going to be able to talk their way out of the race because of an early start time. Why? Because this year the Race for the Cure is going to be an evening GLOW RUN!!
There will be 1 mile, 5k (walk or timed run) and 10k race options. All participants who register will receive a race number (with timing chip if you choose a timed run) and t-shirt. I signed myself up for the 5K (non-chip timed) event, and signed up everyone else for the chip timed 5K. Last year Ronin won for his age group, so he's really excited to see if he can keep his streak up. This will be one of his first races since coming off a broken leg earlier this year.
You can find out more information about the race and register HERE.
We look forward to seeing you all out there on Saturday October 3rd as we light up St. Pete PINK!
