Komen NYC Race for the Cure - September 13, 2009 - 5K Run/Walk - Central Park

Picture 7I ran 4.05 miles this morning.

You can track my progress on my Nike+ Mini to the right of my blog.

So you’ll see how many races I run until the 13th.

Running a 5K is pretty easy for me so I am pretty much prepared however I decided to raise funds for the foundation itself.

I paid $30 to join the race which is also part of my donation. You can donate $1 – $5, anything really.

I want to see how much we can all donate to this great cause. Even men can get breast cancer (put that in consideration).
