Race for the Cure

A couple of weeks ago, a friend of ours here started getting a group together to do the Tokyo "Race for the Cure" walk/run. Unfortunately, AJ is not here, but I had the opportunity to participate. We headed up to Tokyo bright and early this morning and partook in this wonderful event! As most of you know, my mom had breast cancer, so this was something that I was really proud to be a part of. Unfortunately most of the people that did this event with us today have a family member that has been affected by this awful disease. Despite that, we all really enjoyed ourselves. And how cool is it to do something like this in Tokyo? It was the PERFECT fall day here in Japan and the trail was a huge loop around the Imperial Palace, which made for some beautiful scenery! You'll see in the pictures that we had special shirts made as well. It was a great day!
