New goal today! Although I feel very anonymous here (thinly veiled as it is), I’m going to take a step out into the world next month and DO something I’ve never done before. I’m going to WALK for breast cancer! Or is that AGAINST breast cancer? Anyway. I’m doing the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure October 14 in Hunt Valley, MD.
I won’t be racing, actually. Or even walking, probably, since it’s only 10 days after my first Taxol treatment (this is a new chemotherapy drug for me; it may be better, it may be worse, but we don’t know how I’ll react!). But I hear that they do a survivor lap in the 1 mile, and they even run a trolley for survivors who can’t do a whole mile. Now that’s my kind of race!
Maybe next year I’ll be able to race for real. But for now, my new goal is to get out and get to the race. To put on my pink shirt and hat. To mingle with other survivors and see that it CAN be done. And hopefully to bring my mother-in-law along for support — for both of us. Won’t we be a sight in our matching pink survivor t-shirts?
