4. Turkey Day Run, 2006

Happy American Thanksgiving Everyone! (It’s a late wish, but it’s better than nothing.) While most of you were sleeping soundly on Thanksgiving morning, I was awake and dressed for a race. Since I overtaxed my ankle during the Race for the Cure I’ve been gradually training it up, and at this point I’m finally ready for anything.

3. Race for the Cure, 2006

This year I participated in the Charleston, South Carolina Race for the Cure. It’s a 5K (3.1 mile) benefit race which promotes breast cancer research. It’s the first race I’ve participated in besides the Cooper River Bridge Run, so I was pretty excited. The only snag is that I haven’t fully regained the level of fitness which I had before the accident.
