My Day at the Race for the Cure

Saturday was Columbus’ annual leg of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation’s Race for the Cure.  It’s a 5k race/walk to raise money & awareness for breast cancer research.  For the first time since we’ve been in Columbus, my wife and I walked in it this year.  Have you ever seen 40,000 people marching for a common cause?  Look at this;

If it looks like that’s people way up at the edge of sight, it’s ’cause it is.  The line seemed to go on forever.  Behind me, it extended equally as far into the distance.  Nowadays, you don’t see a turnout like this very often, not like back in the 60’s.  It was an amazing event to be a participant in, and very thought provoking as you see the support it receives, the lives it touches.  Difficult not to be deeply moved in such a circumstance.  

Plus, on a lighter note, the day ended nicely with a lunch on the patio at Frog Bear & Wild Boar, downing a few cold ones.  All in all, a morning well spent!
