If you were on the west side of Cleveland the weekend of July 31st, you may have seen throngs of women (and a few handfuls of guys) all decked out in PINK as they traversed through the suburbs of Cleveland walking 60 miles to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer.  In order to participate in the Breast Cancer 3-Day, each walker had to raise over $2300 dollars!  Last year I had the opportunity to walk this event and it was definitely a life changing experience that I would recommend anyone to give it a shot (don’t let the minimum donation amount or the length of the walk scare you!)  While I didn’t get the opportunity this year to participate, I wanted to still go out and cheer on some of the friends I made from last year’s walk (along with Mr. September, from my calendar shoot!) as they got close to finishing up their 3rd day of walking.

Every year my husband and a group of his running buddies put on an ultra race in Youngstown, OH called YUTC.  This past September was the 4th annual and he asked me to help out and take some photos of the event.  Here are a couple of my favorites.
