Komen Race for a Cure 5k

Jackson, MS

Today I cut off my hair to create a pink mohawk, along with the pink beard, pink shorts, and giant painted on ribbons I set off to have my most enjoyable race to date. No timing chip, no time goal, no clock to stare at just thousands around me to entertain as they tackle a 5k.  A good friend of mine, Mandi King, completed her first 5k and I was there to pull her through and keep her moving through the mileage.  Other friends of mine, Stephen Chew and Stephen Houston, finished somewhere in the range of 29 minutes.  Houston and I posed for what seemed like hundreds of pictures, everyone wanted to have their pictures with us.  This was a great morning and more fun than anything I’ve done thus far running.
