Tag Archives: race for the cure

obsession of the week: running?

Now don’t get the wrong idea…I don’t actually like running. But I do like supporting good causes, and the Race for the Cure is one of my favorites. My grandmother, mother-in-law, and cousin have all battled breast cancer. It’s a frightfully common disease, and I like that the race is a fundraiser for research as well as a celebration of the strength of women who have had to fight breast cancer. So, I’ve been running to try to get in shape for the 5K race that I’ll be participating in on June 4 in Hartford, CT.
