A few more days until Halloween - and I didn't even carve a pumpkin yet. At least I've managed to put out 5 decoration items. Yay me! I still have to buy some candy as well. Hopefully there will be a few trick-or-treaters stopping by this year!
I've had another 5k this weekend. This one was the "Paint The Town Pink" 5k in downtown El Dorado, AR. Since my mom passed away cause of breast cancer, and my grandma had colon cancer, (breast)cancer awareness is close to my heart. This run meant a lot to me. It was oficially dedicated to a local cancer victim (#teamcorrie), but I sure dedicated the run to my mom and grandma. I was running for THEM.
The evening before the run was really really emotional for me. I wanted to put a picture of my mom and my grandma on my running shirt. So I went through tons of pictures... and some of the feelings from the past hit me very hard. Seeing pictures of my mom about 6 months before she passed away hurt so so bad. I broke down the second I opened the photo album. She lost so much weight... she looked so fragile and very sick.
Right now I'm sitting here, crying again. I just wish she was still here... It's tough.
The run went very well. I wasn't sure how it would go, because of the flu I had not too long ago. But I ended up RUNNING the whole 5k in 33 minutes. Not one second of walking. I made a video and sure took a few pictures. Enjoy!
