Because 24 years is not enough.

I have been thinking about how I would spin this post since long before the event happened. Should I talk about all the fun I knew we would have or should I talk about the seriousness of the event.  So I am taking my cue from something seen on the back of a shirt.

24 years is not enough.

This past weekend was a "girls weekend" with a cause.  There were eight of us who participated in the 2nd annual 26.2 with Donna, Breast Cancer Marathon.  Some of us ran 26.2, some ran 13.1 and some walked 13.1.  We were all moved by something beyond the event.  It was a sight to behold.  Almost 7,000 runners with one focus.  Eradicating breast cancer.  

There was a lot of pink.  In fact, we were a vision in pink.  

I could have also titled this post, "Shopping, eating, shopping, eating, shopping, running, eating, shopping and then eating again."  How many people do you know that can spend 4 hours shopping at an expo.  A marathon expo. 

And then there is the shoe department at Dillard's.  Personally I think the shoe buyer needs a new job.

Would anyone really wear these shoes? 

There may have been a cocktail or two to celebrate.

It is all about the hardware!

Yes, someone would wear those pink tennis shoes. Gabby would I bet.

The tennies, I like. The other shoes are too close to clear heels!

How cool for you to do that!
I hope you ran in the sneakers and not the heels;)
