Well how about that

This weekend was great. Heather, Jenn and I did the 5Km Run For the Cure sunday morning. It was a brisk chilly morning but it was so much fun. Since Heather is in the family way we briskly walked it, but it was a great walk for a great cause - the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. It was inspiring to meet other survivors and know we helped make a difference. It is probably the only time I will ever wear pink, and wear my pink survivor shirt proudly!
All in all, the run day total for my home town was almost 300,000, and pledges were still coming in that day! I personally was able to raise $1577. Yes, I made a it a weird number by taking in my recyclables...and yes - I am totally blown away by the generosity and kindness of the people in my life. It was far more than I had hoped to raise and...well...aw...shucks people. You're all wonderful! :)

Heather and I went to see Box Trolls after a nice lunch out with Jenn, which is a great little movie. All in all a great weekend. Hope you all had a great weekend.
Back to the lab my good peeps!
Later taters.
