The sun is shining this morning, the birds are tweeting, there is a cool breeze–a perfect day for a run.  Today I am running with a former client, friend, in her first 5k.  It is rewarding to run with someone who is pushing herself to try something new.  Six a.m. is awful early to go ride MARTA and get to Atlantic Station.   There are people in pink every where waiting for the train, you could feel the emotion in the air.  I have only run one other 5K and it was not a cancer race, I could not comprehend the emotions I would feel later in the morning.

Men, women and children in pink.  Many groups had their own shirt showing support for a family member or friend who is fighting cancer.  My heart started to well with emotions I did not know.  Waiting for the to start I am standing next to a women and her husband, on her back was an In Memory of plaque for her sister who lost the battle at age 48.  To stand near so many people who were supporting and uniting for one cause was amazing.  Up a head there was a bald head with many people around her, holding her hand.  I felt love all around me.  Love for strangers on a journey I cannot comprehend, but the love is another story.

Honestly, I went to support a friend on her first run, I came home different.  It is hard to put into words my feelings, I am still processing the emotions.  There are so many brave warriors out there.  They are heroes in my book.
