"Think Like a Man" Hits Theaters Today

SOURCE - Think Like a Man Official Site

Based on Steve Harvey's best-selling book, Think Like a Man follows four interconnected and diverse men whose love lives are shaken up after the ladies they are pursuing buy Harvey's book and start taking his advice to heart. When the band of brothers realize they have been betrayed by one of their own, they conspire using the book's insider information to turn the tables and teach the women a lesson of their own.

With this all-star cast and great storyline, I'm sure it will be a hit!

Race for the Cure 2012

The 20th annual Race for the Cure will be held this year on Saturday, May 19 at 8 am in downtown Columbus.  Are you ready?  As always, I am looking forward to it.  I have been running the Race for the Cure since 2005 and it has become one of the highlights of the year for me.

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 -  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.
