We had not yet walked one mile, but we topped a small hill in Birmingham, and the view was incredible. We were towards the back of the group, and you could see thousands of people in front of us.

We had a great time walking the streets of Birmingham for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in honor of dear friends who have and are battling breast cancer. It was so encouraging to see all of the people whose lives have been touched by breast cancer come out and support such a wonderful cause, united together in hope. This year we were walking especially for Sister Lynn B. over at The Beehive. Notice the shirts! :-)

We're already looking forward to next year's race, and are hoping to make this an annual event. Hope to see you there!

I heard an early report about the day, and it is great to see the pictures match it. What a wonderful time for a wonderful cause and in honor of an especially wonderful person. (And, JY seems to think smiling in a photo will actually kill him or cause serious injury... no matter how many times we try to convince him otherwise. Maybe you can join us in that cause.)

You people are wonderful. Thank you all so much for doing this -- you can't imagine how much it lifts my spirits to see these pictures. I got your package yesterday, and I just adore the tshirt! Great job! I love all of you so much.

What wonderful pictures, and what a worthy woman to run for. Praying with you for a cure, and for Lynn to make a full recovery.

The shirts are great!
