3rd Annual Jodi’s Race for Awareness

by on June 4, 2012

This past Saturday my family and I had the pleasure of running/walking the 3rd annual Jodi’s Race for Awareness presented by the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance.

This was my second 5k since we moved to Denver last July.  It went mildly better than the last one (in October) since I didn’t feel like I had an elephant sitting on my chest this time.  I think I’m finally getting acclimated!

For only being its 3rd year this is a very well run and well attended race.  I think I heard the emcee say that there were over 2,000 participants.  What I was most struck by was the number of women that seemed be young or at least close to my age of early 30s who were wearing survivor shirts.

Here are some pictures that we took along the way.
