We actually made the bridge SHAKE
This past Sunday Alex, my mom, and I woke up at 6:30 AM and drove downtown for the annual Komen Race for the Cure. It was the first year any of us had participated, a fellow coworker recommended that we participate. So we did!
There were over 24,000 participants this year and everyone was decked out in PINK. Alex and I spoke afterwards how we could have easily started crying several times when walkers/runners in front us had signs pinned to their shirts saying, "In Memory of my sister/daughter/mommy," it was heartbreaking yet heart warming at the same time. You could feel the strength of the survivors and their families....very touching.
Before starting the 5K walk we all were lined up on the 1st street bridge and bc of all the weight on it the bridge started to SWAY and SHAKE.....it was an eerie/terrifying feeling I never want to feel again. Luckily the bridge held up and we were all able to have a good race.
Afterwards we met friends at Z Tejas for brunch. Getting there was a trip since a majority of the streets were still roped off and about 24,000 people were all getting into their cars at the same....oy vey!
excited for The Office tonight, wonder what Crazzzzyy things Michael Scott will do this week!
