Go for the Cure!!

Vamos por la Cura!!

Today I ran 5 miles  for "Alaska Run for Women" . It's an organization to raise money for  breast cancer  research and  treatment.
 This was my second year and it has became a tradition for my family, we all got up early and went to cheer mommy to make it to the final line!! In my town there are lots of races, marathons..etc but  Alaska Run for Women is special...This year we participate over 7 200 women a big number eh!...And when women put together such a magnific event the results are Pink!! We all wear pink outfits and bring our husbands alone with something pink as well : )
Looking forward to sign up for the race next year.

Hoy corri  cinco millas por  "Corriendo por las mujers de Alaska". Es una organizacion para recaudar fondos para el tratamiento y cura  del cancer de mama.
Este fue mi segundo año y se ha convertido en una tradición para mi familia, todos nos levantamos temprano y vamos animar  a mamá ( yo) para llegar a la meta! Este año participaron alrededor  de 7 200 mujeres ... ¡SI!! Un gran número .... Y cuando las mujeres arman  un evento tan magnifico , los resultados son rosa! Todas llevan trajes de color rosa y algunas traemos a nuestros eposos vestidos  con algo de color rosa tambien : )
Esperando ansiosa para inscribirme  en la carrera del próximo año.


Warming up...

Calentando..


Ready...set..go!

A sus marcas ,listas..ya!



Here I am with my cheerleaders (my husband and my daughter) after I finished my race..

Aqui estoy yo con mis porristas (mi esposo y mi hija) despues de haber llegado a la meta..


C kept saying "mommy I love your race" ...so sweet! I hope when she gets a little bit older we can run together.

Desde que regresamos de la carrera C venia diciendo todo el camino "mami me encanto tu carrera"...muy dulce ella! Espero que cuando ella sea un poco mayor podamos correr juntas..

Did you know that every three minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the U.S.. ??

Sabias que cada tres minutes una mujer es diagnosticada con cancer de mama en los Estados Unidos??


Let's pray for the cure!!

Rezemos por que se encuentre la cura!!

Way to go!

I did not realize that you are in Alaska. It is on my bucket list to truly visit and enjoy. I have only been there on business.

I love the pictures! You are absolutely gorgeous!

Hugs!
