I have just completed my Run for the Cure.  I ran 1 km for every $100 that was donated on my behalf ($1019), plus a little extra for myself and all the other breast cancer warriors (I dedicated my "race" to you frozenstar‍ , for you are a true Warrior).  It was +12 when I started and it's up to +16 now, a bit too warm for my liking.

Not quite as fabulous as Runner Girl‍ but I did my bit. Some of you are aware of the pink tutu challenge. I wanted to be sure that you knew it happened.

It happened. This is my post from Facebook so apologies for the cross posting. Things I learned:
1. People love a guy running in a tutu. Lots of laughs waves and "you can do this.
2. At the end of 6K it is really hard to not step in dog s***. People pick up after your damm dog!
3. I can do it. The mask was a pain so I compromised and only wore it when I was around people.
4. It felt lonely. There were several other groups of pink shirts but I was the only solo runner that I saw. But then I thought of all my supporters cheering me on. And then it wasn't so lonely.
5. People are amazing. I figured a couple hundred bucks. But we raised over $750! Thank you

Thanks so much for all the support and encouragement. Kims1961‍  gets credit for the training plan.  And I started this week on the 10K training so I have that to look forward to next year. Oh and I was 10 out of 65 when I punched into the leaderboard today!

Well done all! Those who participated,

those who supported and those who just take each day, one step at a time.

I can’t top Angus in outfit but did have a running buddy, who beat me by a paw!

WestCoastSailor‍   10 out of 65? That's fantastic! Gearing up to the 10k? Even more fantastic!
Congratulations and Bravo(!) for representing the many male breast cancer patients that are out there.

The virtual opening ceremonies were amazing! My mom and I watched them together. I hate that we share this fight, but am so grateful for how it is bringing us closer.

Unfortunately the weather here in Ontario was terrible (cold and wet) and I was only 4 days out from chemo (so totally wiped out + immune system in the toilet). We decided to delay our walk by one week as a result. We’ll get out there on October 14 and walk. I figure our sponsors (just shy of $1000) deserve a couple photos of us in our pink shirts at least!
