As today is the first Sunday in October, it is the annual CIBC Run for the Cure in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Society. I think this may be the first time that I've had to do it in the rain. I've walked in a wee bit of snow (or was that the Mother's day run?) but never rain. Don't worry though...Walkers for Knockers East represented (and I bet all you walkers for knockers west types will be jealous of our shirts). Despite the cold rainy conditions, we had a good time and definitely enjoyed getting our free boxes of crackers at the end.
Plus, Jordan and I learned a new word. Apparently, when you step in a puddle and get your foot all wet, it is called a "soaker". Two different people used that term today...when we asked about it they were like "well what do you call it out west" our response was "ummm....i stepped in a puddle and my foot got wet?"
October is "think pink" month so there is still time to donate. Just check out the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation website (and thank you to all of you that sponsored me this year).
