Revlon/Run Walk 2009 Finish Line wide

Some of you may have remembered my previous post here asking for pledges. Although I miserably failed to garner more than 2 "pledges", I am just glad to still have been able to participate in the Revlon Run/Walk for Women last Saturday May 9, 2009.

It was a gloomy morning when we gathered at the LA Coliseum. I probably got there a little after the program started. Yes, just in time to be greeted by the husky voice of Miley Cyrus (oh what a delight!). I wish I had heard Cristina Applegate speak. As a child of a breast cancer survivor, who herself went through a double mastectomy only late last year, I just thought she would have something to say.

Anyways it was a great turnout. A little overwhelming at first since I didn't know what to expect. The event is in it's 16th year which I think speaks volumes. It was amazing to see every one supporting such a worthy cause. The best part was near the finish line where a group of tyco drummers greeted the runners and walkers. Everyone just started to pick up pace when they heard the beat. The path then led to a tunnel where you could hear the crowd cheer and clap at everyone for a good finish. I admit this was when I broke into a silly grin. I couldn't help but feel like Ben-Hur in that infamous chariot race. It was a pretty cool experience overall. I think it's a good way to do accomplish a good deed while exercising.

Next event...the Rockin' Charity Spin-a-Thon. If you are in LA do check it out at:!!!
