Race For The Cure...I need names

Tomorrow morning I will be running in the Susan G Komen Race For The Cure.
I am really excited about this race. There are supposed to be around 1400-1500 participants and will be the largest race I have done yet.
But I am also glad I can participate in a such a great charity.

By the way, have you read the story of Susan G. Komen? If not go HERE to read it. For me, it put a face with a name..and made me realize that "Susan" could be any one of US!

Fortunately, I have never had a family member with breast cancer. One of my best friend's mom's, Teresa Ensor, was diagnosed with breast cancer a few years ago
and is cured!!! I am so thankful she was healed, and pray others like her are just as successful at beating this cruel disease!

However, I need more names!!!

As I am running this race tomorrow I want to think about the others I am running for....both survivors and those who lost the battle. I want to lift up in prayer those who you know with this disease as I run the 3.1 mile course.

So please comment with the name(s) of anyone you would like lifted up in prayer!! I will make sure I have them on my mind tomorrow as I run!!!!!
