Our friend, Lut, just celebrated 1 year post chemo tx and treated herself (and us) to a lovely 6k race through downtown Antwerp. It was a first for Bronwen, Alex, and I and we kicked butt! The kids ran the last part and I'm proud to say I ran the entire thing in a semi-respectable time (yes, it's only 3.7 miles but that’s 3.7 miles more than I usually run). It was a very humbling experience running with 5000 people of all ages and fitness levels, and many of whom are in the midst of chemo treatments or have fought the ugly beast and WON! I teared up when I was explaining to Browen why we were running and that all the women wearing pink shirts are fighting or have fought breast cancer and how incredibly brave and strong they are, like Oma! Here are a few pictures of our morning in Antwerp...
