Big Walk for cancer

We headed down to the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium this morning for the annual Discovery Health Algoa FM Big Walk for Cancer along with about 7000 other people.  It may not sound like fun having to get up between 5 and 6am to leave home just after 6 for a 7am start, but the weather was stunning and fun walks like this is a great way to escape the house and get some exercise along with the family.

It wasn't just us two legged homo sapience that took part in the race, but also a couple of our 4 legged friends.  This one was even wearing a race shirt with a race number on his back.

    I just learned that there are various colors for specific cancers.
    The Husky seems to be enjoying himself.

    I am not walker - not by a long shot, and are currently really struggling with some muscle cramps since I was sooooo not fit enough for the 5 km walk, BUT BUT BUT What an amazing experience to have been part of such a moment with my family. Well done to the organizers, and this was my first walk, but defnitely not my last, hopefully I will not need the deepheat and myprodols next year.
