Experiences

Run for the Cure 2010

It’s been a while yet again since my last post, for the usual reason (work).  I have a few posts lined up; I just need the time to write them out (and sort through pictures)…

This morning though, I managed to get up (sort of) early to go to the annual Run for the Cure event.  I’ve attended each one for the last 3 years and participated in the 10k runs the last 2 years.  This year, since it’s been so long since I’ve run, I just walked 1 lap (5k) and shot pictures along the way.  Those pictures will be uploaded later after I’ve had a chance to sift through them (took nearly 400 pictures >_<;)

After the run, there were a couple of events, one of which was a series of very cool taiko performances by the Tawoo group.  A couple of the members of the group were survivors of breast cancer themselves, and it was amazing to see the amount of energy they had.

I recorded 2 of the performances, both of which I’ve uploaded to Youtube.  Unfortunately, the recordings are nowhere near as impressive as watching the performances live, but hopefully one can get a sense of their spirit and energy.
