|For my lady readers--you are welcome.|
Speaking of races, some of you have asked what race The Non Race Runner is training for in January. It wasn't by accident I haven't mentioned the name of the race so my apologies if you think I wasn't answering your questions. I was just ignoring you (with love). A race really has to speak to me in order for me to sign up for it. This one spoke, especially at this time of year it spoke, right to me.

"You'll never win any races looking in the rear view mirror"
Somehow I came across this race and it was perfect. London's story touched me. She was six years old when she was diagnosed with Cancer. I hate cancer. Cancer sucks. Cancer can kiss my grits. So many I love have been taken by cancer. Others I love have kicked cancers butt. So although I think there is a marathon race in the city right next to mine the same day as this race I'm going to drive an hour and a half to some small town, on some small farm, where I think this year they are actually getting all "official" and will have actual timing chips--I guess I better figure out what I'm suppose to do with those--on the shoe right? (j/k) This sounds like my kind of race. London lost her fight with cancer and this race is in her honor. All proceeds go to help families that have children with cancer in this small community. Yay for small communities, you are what make the world go round. So there you have it! The NRR 1st official race of 2011!
I leave you with,
