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!
Congratulations and Bravo(!) for representing the many male breast cancer patients that are out there.
Pink tutus rule.
Kims1961 you look fantastic! Nice that you have a running buddy that keeps your competitive edge alive!
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!
