Losing a pet to cancer is one of the hardest things a person has to deal with. It's heartbreaking to watch your best friend fade because of something they didn't deserve. You can see the pain in their eyes and you feel helpless against it. I personally have faced this disease twice and both times my furry children fought a hard battle but eventually their little bodies couldn't take it anymore. So no one else has to face this pain, I've put together this blog to help raise money for canine cancer research.
This way there will always be a furry, friendly face on the other end of the leash!

Garden of the Gods 10 Miler

I had to put up something for the gals who trained so hard for this race! 
Thanks to Judy and Boulder Running Company for all of their support!

I've seen this at several marathon races.  Once I saw a sign that said "Vasoline on next tree!"  and there it was on a plank of wood nailed to the tree.  A big glob in the center. 
I didn't have many takers at this short race.  I know the ones who took me up on it were very happy to see me.

I saw this once at the Flying Pig and I'm so glad I did it today.  Everyone was chuckling at the sign. 

Lots of smiles and "cute sign" comments.  I had a lot of people wanting to take a break going up that big hill to give me a hug. 
Even had a guy ask if he could have the sign. 

It was a great day for the race.  Nice and cool at the start.  Didn't get too warm, but I did get a few sweaty hugs.  I'm so glad I went out to cheer on the runners.  Hope they enjoyed the hugs and bell ringing!
