Happy Monday! Hope you all had a good weekend. It was another great racing weekend, with lots of great reports from the Marine Corp Marathon in DC and others. I also got to spectate at the Houston Half yesterday, and saw my friends Holly and May nail shiny new prs, as well as many others from our local training group. We finally had a cool weekend, it was fantastic racing weather.
October is nearing to a close, and although October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s not too late to help the cause. You’ve probably noticed pink in all sorts of places, to remember women who have battled cancer and to encourage further research and awareness.
One of my best friend’s mother dealt with breast cancer when we were in college, and it was extremely frightening. Thankfully, she recovered and is a proud survivor. I’ve had several other acquaintances struggle through it as well. It’s hard not to be touched by cancer in some way these days.
Did you know that Reebok is a proud sponsor of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and will donate a minimum of $300k to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade? They have a specific line of products and will donate from the pink ribbon product sales to help support access to care and to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.
With the holidays approaching, this is a great way to give back twice. If you have any athletes or runners to buy for, check out the pink ribbon collection and some of your money will go toward the Breast Cancer fund. And it’s not all pink! I love this black zip up top… hint, hint… hubs? Mom?
Even better, Reebok has offered to give one of you the chance to win a pair of shoes from the pink ribbon line.
There are a number of cute styles and color options to choose from.
To enter, choose one or all of the following:
