FOTOS DO SANDRO CABRAL NOSSAS FOTOS
Last Sunday, on May 22nd there was the Race for Cancer Patients in Maringá, Paraná State in the South of Brazil. Running is always good but running for a good cause is much better! Carme and I were there and I thought it would be easier because it a a race for women.
The event was small, well organized, charming and warm and it reminded me of my first race for Cancer Patients in Hillsboro in the EUA. In Maringá there was t-shirt, a nice staff and lots of friends, but there was no chipping time which made our life complicated because... we were late for the start...
The guys had a very sharp watch, because when I looked at my watch, which is most of the time ahead, it was 8:28 and the start would be at 8:30. At this moment I listened to the staff shouting 5... 4... 3... 2...1 and ... too late, all the women started running and Carme and I were at least 200m from the beginning. Bad timing, I did 6K in 35:05, it was much like a turtle on the road! and the worst was that I ran over lots of runners to compensate but all useless. Carme was not good either (she agrees) and did the race in 36min.
That's it, these women from Paraná run a lot, but we will find our place near them someday. Check our happiness out from the photo taken by the great photographer Sandro Cabral from Eucorro.com. (Before the race, of course!)
