We did it cousin!!! She tore it up! I am so proud of her...she did not train for the race - nor did I - ran through some tough hills, and some crazy distance all with a compromised knee....we are crazy cousins and that's the way we like it!!! All the women on the course loved our pink skirts, gloves, beenies and anything else we found pink to run in.....Go team!!! A lady had a sign around mile 20 that read..."Suck It Cancer!!" I laughed so hard......then yelled "Yea....suck it cancer!!!" We danced and had so much fun that everybody wondered how we were able to do that.
Cause we love eachother, support eachother, and help eachother to take another step forward when we feel like stopping. Michele has always been there for me, and I for her. We've both traveled through some really dark places in our lives, some together, some not.....but we always knew that we could do a race together and somehow everything just felt better after that. I'm still a little scared about what tomorrow holds for me and scared for her and that lump she feels...but I know no matter what life throws at us - we will be there for one another - arms wrapped around the others shoulders - race bib pinned to our shirts - saying "c'mon couzin you can do it..." and we ALWAYS do. Somehow. And after the race and the time spent together laughing - it's always better in the world.
