Update: OPERATION: Vegas 2012OPERATION: Vegas 2012 The time has come and here are my results:
I FINISHED the Louisville Triple Crown of Running, and I have the tee shirt to prove it! I did really well sticking to the plan and finishing all three races. My total triple crown time was 5:00:56 (which may seem like a long time, and believe me IT FELT LIKE A LONG TIME) but I did it, and I am darn proud of myself.
To celebrate my achievement, I will be running in the Las Vegas Komen Race for the Cure 5K on May 5, which is THIS SATURDAY. Afterwards, I will spend the weekend celebrating in VEGAS, BABY!
As of my weigh-in this morning, I've lost 14 pounds. That's short of my goal but I am not giving up and I am still working!

How is the money raised from the Race for the Cure spent?
Up to 75 percent of the Komen Southern Nevada Race for the Cure's net income stays in Southern Nevada to fund local screening, treatment and education programs for the medically underserved. The remaining 25 percent is dedicated to the national Susan G. Komen for the Cure Grants Program, which funds groundbreaking breast cancer research. Thanks to people like you, in 2011, the Komen Southern Nevada Affiliate was able to grant $725,000 to local community programs in our six county service area. This year we are aiming even higher! If every 2012 Race participant raised an average of just $125, we could raise over $1.8 million. Imagine the impact that can make on our community.
