***OFFICIAL GYM FOR MRS. IDAHO AMERICA***

Today was the Komen "Race for the Cure" Event!!! Several of the staff and contestants participated on the Mrs. Idaho America Team and we had a great time. It was so much fun to get to see everybody again. The day started early with breakfast at Sher's house (thanks so much for the fruit & muffins - - you are awesome!) After a few group photos, (we absolutely cannot do anything together without cameras) we all headed down to the race. Thank heavens for modern day technology - - namely cell phones! There were over 13,000 race participants this year. We were all able to find each other near the main stage and then waited until it started. We decided to be the last ones to take off and not get sandwiched in between so many people. We strolled along at our own pace and had a really good time catching up with everyone. I was so lucky to have my mom in her pink survivor shirt and my sweet daughter along for the day. It was overwhelming to see the number of racers out to support the cause. I felt bad that I didn't get a chance to tell everyone good bye, but it was hard to stick together. Beverly saved the day when my camera ran out of batteries - - you would have thought she was my own mother - - making get great pictures for this blog. Thanks Bev! Stay tuned for the next post -- and Happy Mother's Day to you all!
