Mothers Day Y-Me Breast Cancer Race
While my husband jogs, I will walk with KC and Tif to join thousands in the Chicago Y-Me Breast Cancer 5K Walk/Race. We've done it every year for the past several years. This reminds us of the time a couple of years ago when my husband and I were in Hawaii and our son, Jon came to visit his sister in Chicago. Tif was stricken with nausea in the early stages of her pregnancy and couldn't participate as she'd meant to. Just for fun, Jon said he could take her number and run for her. When the race results came in, we were rather flabberghasted. He'd come in 17th as a woman! Tif could not believe it. We laughed at the thought that the following year, her time would be at a crawl compared to the previous year. Jon is the cute guy in the maroon top with khaki shorts. Tif sent us this photo while we were in Hawaii that she had gotten off of the Y-Me website. Let's hope Sunday is a clear, pollen-free day for our Mother's Day walk. I believe our son-in-law is promising to provide us with a delicious Mother's Day congratulatory brunch after the race. Happy Mothers Day everyone!
