I decided not to have a team this year. However, I encourage everyone to sign up individually. The fee to register as an individual is $30. You can register online until May 8.
A few people have expressed concerns about the organizations that Komen Columbus funds. You can find a very clear explanation on their website - www.komencolumbus.org. They have responded to questions about their involvement with Planned Parenthood and they also provide a complete list of organizations they fund.
Even though I'm looking forward to the Race for the Cure, I must admit that it is secondary for me this year. I am facing a new challenge. I will be running a quarter marathon as part of The Capital City Half Marathon on May 5. I am really excited about this new challenge and I have been focusing my training on this race. You can read more about this race in my blog post. You can follow my training on my facebook page.
I hope to see you at the Race for the Cure on May 19.
