Making Strides Against Breast Cancer

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! If you’ve watched any football at all lately, you’ve probably noticed all the players wearing pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month (who knew that so many football accessories came in pink?!). I was glad I got to join in the fun this month by participating in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on Sunday with my sorority.

It seems like our Indian summer has finally come to an end, as it was a brisk 40 degree morning.

My sorority sister who also ran the Rochester Marathon was walking as well, and we joked about having “flashbacks” as we walked the course! This time, we were only walking a mile (not running 26.2!) so it was a wee bit easier. Doesn’t it look familiar? 😉

I loved all the positive energy and excitement from all the walkers coming together for this cause. It’s really an amazing feeling to participate in events like this, with so many people celebrating the fight against breast cancer. There was even live music along the course which added to the festive atmosphere!

I had so much fun checking out all the pink costumes and outfits.
