I decided at about 6:30 this morning that I wanted to walk the Making Strides for Breast Cancer 5k at Lake Nokomis. Registration started today at 8. :)
I woke my mom up and she, of course, was totally on board to walk also.
Chemotherapy has added to my insomnia....... and also my impulsiveness.
I have been driving myself nuts with the "what ifs" again. I hate that part of this. The hormonal part of the chemo/menopause is making me a little crazy.
I knew the best thing I could do today to up my spirits would be to surround myself with people who had fought and lived or were currently fighting.
Man, was I right.
Everyone there was so happy. They were encouraging. They were thankful.
There were thousands of people walking for a great cause. It was an awesome feeling.
My spirit felt renewed. My hope rekindled.
It was a great experience and I am so grateful that I was feeling well enough to participate.
Some of the survivors lining up.
These were happy tears, I swear. The finish line and all the people cheering made me a little emotional.
