The "Bandanna" Rests

I was never in doubt as to which shirt I would wear during the running of the Boilermaker 15K. As for the pink bandanna, it proudly took it's place upon my head. As you know from previous posts to the blog, I wear it for my dear friend Donna who is currently battling breast cancer.

The Boilermaker 15K, was a fun race again this year. This is the third consecutive year I have run the race. My nephew Jim, aka blog "Runner's Anonymous", and I took on the challenge of the hills in Central New York. I am proud to say that he and I both achieved PR's in the 15K and my niece Eileen, PR'd in the 5K! Both of them are planning to be in Jacksonville Beach in February. As mentioned in the previous post, Daria ran the 15K as well.

I had a few runners stop me after the race to inquire about the "26.2 with Donna". I told them to check out the website and be sure to register! We are still a long way from February 2009, but now is the time to spread the word and get the registrations coming in. Please join us!

"Bandanna" Visits New York!

We took our show on the road to Utica, New York and located Daria decked out in her "26.2 with Donna" race shirt. Daria is a regular visitor to "The Pink Bandanna" and has been a contributor with her comments. She ran the inaugural race this past February.

Back in April when I told her I would be running the "Boilermaker 15K" in Utica, she told me that was her home town. We made plans to meet at the expo on Saturday before the race. She told me to look for her in her "Donna" shirt. Having never met her the shirt was going to be the beacon. Right on time I saw her approaching. Of course we had to have pictures taken and talk about the upcoming "26.2 with Donna". Daria has already signed up for the race in February.

Please join us in Jacksonville Beach on February 15, 2009.
