Misty shakes her rump to fight cancer

Inside a cancerous colon, originally uploaded by MCuthbert.

One of Misty's New Year's resolutions this year was to complete a 5K. She's been working on a "Couch to 5K" program, running through the neighborhood.

Today she accomplished her goal, participating in the Rumpshaker 5K, a benefit for colon cancer research. I am so proud of her!

Kendall and I accompanied Misty to the race, which began and ended at Sloss Furnaces. After the event, the runners walk through a giant inflatable colon that shows cancerous cells growing inside. It's a lighthearted look at a serious disease.

Here are some more pictures from the event.
