The Race for the Cure is this coming Sunday. Some people participate in Denver with thousands of others and are inspired by the incredible number of people who join in to help this great cause. Here in Grand Lake we also have a 5k run-walk that is affiliated with the Denver Komen Race but in our own smaller version. Last year we enjoyed the company of around 300 friends who ran, walked or strolled the course that winds it's way through our little village and were also inspired by not only the beauty of the mountains around us but also by the energy of the people here who share the dream to find a cure.
Pictured above is our great friend Terri "O'Dell-A -Witz" who was going through treatment at this time last year and sporting her beautiful baldness underneath that funky hat.
This week I will attempt to share some of the spirit that abounds here on race day on this blob. I encourage comments from people who have been here for the race or been involved somewhere else.
Anyone who wants to join in can register at http://www.komendenver.org/ Our team name is Team Grand Lake. Or you can register Sunday at Pancho & Lefty's starting at 9:00 am.
PS. The weather is expected to be sunny and fine
