“When your feet get tired, run with your heart.”
Last weekend, on October 14th, my oldest sister ran the Nike Woman’s Marathon in San Francisco. I can’t explain how proud I am of her. She raised over six thousand dollars to support Leukemia and Lymphoma research and ran 26.2 miles. Amazing.
She ran for my grandma.
She ran for the millions of people who have lost their lives to blood cancer.
And she ran for the millions of people who have fought it and are still fighting it.
My parents, Sister Sam Sam, my cousin Sheena, and Shannon’s boyfriend Brian were all in San Francisco for the weekend. We had such a wonderful time together enjoying a city that I hope to one day live in. We didn’t do much of the touristy things, I didn’t even see the Golden Gate bridge!Â But, we got to see the city in a different light… and by that, I mean we got to have a sneak peak of what it’s like to be on the amazing race. During the marathon, we used every type of transportation and ran down streets and up streets trying to find Shannon so that we could cheer for her. We were unsuccessful numerous times, but got to see her at the beginning and even got to pace her for the last few miles.
Oh, and did I mention that we all had purple nails?
